Being vegan means most of the candy bars and other trick-or-treating sweets are ruled out, but it doesn't mean that Halloween will be a healthy holiday for your family. There are plenty of vegan candies and other goodies that may be cruelty-free but aren't calorie- or sugar-free. Here are four fun ways to make your vegan Halloween a healthier occasion.

4 Tips for a healthier Halloween

Consider candy alternatives

Your kids may scream for candy and sugary-sweet treats, but you'll be the one screaming when their energy and mood levels take a dive. Stock up and pass out healthier eats, such as little boxes of raisins, nutrition bars, granola, or trail mix.

DIY Halloween goodies

Homemade Halloween treats are healthier than processed, packaged junk food. Instead of candy, try Pumpkin Cupcakes, Granola Clusters, or Kettlecorn.

Go sugar-free

If your kids -- and the neighborhood kids -- won't touch the healthier treats, skip the sugar altogether. Go to your local dollar store and fill your basket with small Halloween-themed toys, such as fake spiders, glowing rings, pencils and more.

Huff it from house to house

Join your trick-or-treaters in going door to door in your neighborhood and the one beyond. The more ground you cover, the more exercise you get while enjoying the fresh air and festivities.
