Health Tip: Enjoy a Healthier Halloween

You don't have to serve up 'junk food'

(HealthDay News) -- If you're planning a Halloween party for the neighborhood kids, candy and other "junk food" aren't your only options.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests these healthier alternatives:

  • For trick-or-treaters, offer low-calorie drinks and treats. For party guests, serve veggies, fruit and cheese.
  • Encourage kids to get as much exercise as possible during party games and trick-or-treating.
  • Clear all walking areas, including any stairs, to reduce the risk of falls.
  • Make sure all lit jack-o'lanterns and candles are placed on sturdy tables and out of the reach of children.
  • Encourage family drivers to be especially careful of walking trick-or-treaters.
