15 Low Carb Halloween Treats Your Kids Will Love

Cookie Butter Cups

Halloween doesn’t have to mean a day (or a week) of roller coaster blood sugars. You can celebrate with costumes, and games, and even trick-or-treat (hopefully your neighbors will have treats that aren’t candy). For those who do load up on candy, the Switch Witch is a great way to get the junk food out of your home without making your kids feel like they’ve been cheated out of something good. The Switch Witch  (or Pumpkin/Halloween Fairy) comes at night and swaps a child’s bag of candy for a toy. If the Switch Witch isn’t your thing, there are still plenty of ways to keep the candy away on Halloween. 

Medtronic’s Loop blog suggests keeping the focus away from food. “Take the focus off of candy by encouraging arts and crafts projects, pumpkin carving/painting contests, watching a Halloween movie, visiting a haunted house, or going on a hayride. This is a great way to create memories that don’t involve food.”

Another good idea comes from EveryDayT1Magic, where D-Mom Robyn says, “I’ve tried to create new Halloween traditions for my two kids ever since my child was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age seven. On Halloween night, we dress up in costume and go out to a nice — but sensible — dinner at the restaurant of their choice. Then we go to the mall, and I give them each $20 to spend on whatever they like. It’s a fun thing for them and creates a lot less stress for me.”

Having low carb Halloween treats at home is another way to celebrate the day without worrying about crazy blood glucose. Here are some of our favorite low carb Halloween treat ideas:
