With the countdown to Halloween getting smaller with each day, I thought I would share a few Healthy Alternatives For Halloween Candy. Since most of the bloggers on Makobi Scribe are watching our weight, it seemed a logical post to do! I never think of healthy options for Halloween treats because we all love the high calorie treats at Halloween. It would be so nice to find a healthy substitute for those delicious candies. If you are a health conscious person, you probably want to find the healthiest option out there. Whether you are looking for yourself in order to not gain the extra holiday pounds or for your child to avoid a dentist visit in the future, it is not easy. Especially, this time of year it is hard to find that healthy snack that both parents and kids can agree on. Here are a few suggestions to hand out on Halloween.

Keith and Pat, co-founders of popchips, spent over a year perfecting this naturally delicious snack that consumers could eat and not feel guilty about calories. What this pair developed is a low calorie chip that is big on flavor! Katy Perry, the new face of popchips new tortilla chip line, has some celebrity friends who are crazy about this new treat. Among the snacking celebs are Ashton Kutcher and Heidi Klum. And this company definitely does not fall short on taste. With flavors such as nacho cheese, ranch, chili limon, and salsa (from their NEW Tortilla line) how could you resist a bag? Did I mention they are also made with all natural ingredients? Everything from stone ground corn masa, real cheddar cheese, buttermilk, and a touch of paprika extract.
