Tricks for Healthful Halloween Treats

Halloween is fast approaching - are you planning to spook Cincinnati at Ghoulman Stadium Friday night? It's the first Halloween football game on campus in 50 years.

Whether a football fan or a frantic fiend, it's a good idea to watch the sugar intake on All Hallows Eve. One idea is to provide sugar-free treats to trick-or-treaters. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has a list healthful Halloween treats that go beyond the usual toothbrush:
  • Whole-grain cheddar flavored crackers
  • Fruit snacks made with 100-percent fruit with added vitamin C
  • Fruit leathers made with 100-percent fruit
  • Sugar-free gum
  • Animal-shaped graham crackers made without trans fat
  • Mini rice cereal treat bars
  • Cereal bars made with real fruit
  • Individual fruit cups
  • Mini 100-percent fruit juice boxes
  • Low-fat pudding cups
  • Baked, unsalted bags of pretzels
