- Non-edible treats: In advance of Halloween, I buy a few small items that my daughter will enjoy, such as a small puzzle, animal figurines, and even Halloween socks. I leave these items at my mother's house so that, when we arrive there and say "trick-or-treat", these items get dropped into my daughter's bag.
- "Legal" sweets: Since my daughter isn't often allowed to eat things like fruit leather, they serve as a great candy replacement on Halloween. I'll drop a few "legal" sweet treats in her bag along with the other items she has collected while trick-or-treating. Some ideas for legal sweet treats are:
- Honey sticks(they sell these at our natural foods store)
- Fruit leather
- Fresh fruit
- Homemade cookies
- Freeze-dried fruit
