Halloween Trick or Treat Candy Alternatives to Halloween Candy While apples are a positive alternative, any fruit may be given out as a positive alternative to candy. Bananas, pears, grapes, plums; Put some strawberries, blueberries or other berries in plastic baggies…trick-or treater parents – just be sure to inspect (and wash fruits) all treats your child receives before they eat it. Popcorn Goldfish crackers – whole grain cheddar are a favorite of mine for my kiddies. Treats don’t have to be edible! Choose Dollar Store items, such as pencils, pens, erasers, markers or crayons, plastic spider (not a fav. of mine). Fruit roll ups that are 100% all fruit. Kids love sticky notes.
