halloween guide

Vegetarian moms, vegan moms, and just plain healthy moms are worried about Halloween and the amount of candy our kids will likely consume.

Sure, sugar overload is a concern, but did you also know that many kinds of candy contains gelatin and other animal products? Even chocolate contains stearic acid, which is a fatty substance made from animal stomachs. That's bad news for moms who worry about what they are putting into their little one's tummies.

Luckily, PETA has a long list of healthy(ish) Halloween treats that are better for kids. I'm sure you'll recognize most of the candy on it.
