9 non-candy Halloween treats for preschoolers

As parents, we all have endless things to worry about. And for parents of children with allergies, Halloween can be a real issue. The statistics are staggering—over 5.9 million children (or roughly two in every classroom) have a food allergy, according to a study done by the Food Allergy Research & Education Organization.


Many schools or classrooms choose to host candy-free parties for this reason, but that does not mean your preschoolers will miss out on the fun! Here are ten non-candy treats that your little ones will enjoy. (And bonus, all of these are available on Amazon Prime if you are finding this last minute!)
