Do you love Halloween but worry about all the sweets coming home with your kids or sitting in bowls around your house? Here are a couple of healthier tips for you promoted by Community Renewal Team's CATCH Healthy Habits Program:
Instead of candy, consider handing out some fun, nutritious alternatives:
-small boxes of raisins
-Grahm or goldfish crackers
-small bottles of water
-un-popped bags of natural popcorn
-non-refridgerated tube-packaged yogurts
-small bags of trail mix or nuts
-roasted pumpkin seeds / sunflower seeds
-fun pencils, erasers, stickers, plastic rings, plastic wristbands, Play-Doh, playing cards or other small toys
-encourage physical activity and hand out Frisbees, balls or other sports-related items
-small donomination gift cards for downloads of new ringtones or songs
If you are feeling even more motivated to encourage healthy habits, you can become a CATCH Coach this fall by volunteering to work with children in an after-school setting that promotes health and wellness for you and the students.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!!
