Every year for the past 8 years, I have an unappealing Halloween ritual. I’m coming clean today. About one week before Halloween, I usually realize that we have not bought our household’s trick-or-treat candy yet. I rush to the nearest Target to pick through the picked-over selections. And usually, those selections are a compilation of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives held together by high fructose corn syrup with a hearty dose of GMO ingredients thrown in for good measure.
This year, everything changed. I am organized! I am ready! Veritey is powering Green Halloween, a grassroots initiative that has made Halloween safe, healthy and affordable while keeping all the fun. I have been thinking about Halloween every day for the past few months, and I know EXACTLY what to serve the adorable trick-or-treaters coming to our house this year. I’m not going to wait until the week before Halloween and pick up whatever junk is in the aisle, because this year, Veritey put together a handy Candy Cheat Sheet that makes it simple to figure out exactly what makes for a healthier candy, as well as the best candy alternatives.
So make this your resolution this week. Get educated on what makes for a healthier Halloween treat. Follow Green Halloween on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest news.
