Imagine for a minute that it is Halloween night. Your doorbell sounds, “ding dong,” and you open the door to find a rather cute fairy, a menacing pirate, and a giggling baby Ninja Turtle.
Smiling, you reach your hand into your candy bowl and pull out their treats: Lifesaver Gummies, Nestle’s chocolate bars, and Tootsie Roll Pops. But what are they really eating? High-frutose corn syrup, non-fair trade chocolate, and dye-ridden lollipops.
Choosing to pass out natural, organic and fair-trade candy is not only a safe and healthy option for a childs treat, but it also is quite the “trick” for kids. They won’t be eating dyes, preservatives or ingredients that are not safe for their bodies.
Here are a few wonderful options kids will love:
Ingredients: Milk chocolate (evaporated cane juice, cocoa butter*, chocolate liquor*, whole milk powder, soy lecithin, vanilla extract). *Fair Trade Certified
