How to Have a Successful Keto Halloween: Dozens of Ideas and Recipes for a Fun and Sweet Holiday
Do you dread holidays that are centered around food and sweets now that you are eating healthy? Here are lots of ideas and recipes so you can know how to have a successful Keto Halloween.
No one wants to give up any of the fun or traditions they are used to having. With some tweaks, you will be ready to enjoy Halloween and still stay Keto!
Make it a family night instead.
If you can get away with it, pull your shades, keep your house dark and have a family game or movie night with Keto treats at home. Our neighborhood “code” has always been “if lights are on, trick or treat, if no lights, no trick or treat”. Or if your neighborhood is a trick or treat hot spot, escape to an amusement park, zoo, bowling alley, mini golf, or even a local hotel with a great pool.
Switch Witch has become very popular! It is fun to read the book through the weeks or days before Halloween and then the child puts out the candy to be switched out for a toy or money. You can buy it on Amazon; it comes with book and stuffed witch. Get it here.

Go to friends and family who know you and will give your child Keto items they have purchased or you have dropped off ahead of time.
Many dentists will buy back candy and send it to our troops overseas. Children will usually love to have money to go and buy something they have been wanting; toys, art supplies, clothes, shoes, an outing, depending on age.
Tell your child you will buy back their candy (set your price at .10 a piece or $1/lb; whatever works for you) and then donate it to our troops (HERE is a link to show you how), a homeless shelter or food pantry: let them help decide where it goes.
There is the option of sugar free candy although it is recommended to not overdo that. Severe gastric distress is a very good possibility if you eat too much. Malitol is especially offensive if you are not used to it. Seriously; be careful with that stuff!
Some brands like Lilly’s, Zolli Pops, Zaffi Taffi, Dr. John’s candies and Choc Zero are good ones and many make out just fine with any sugar free type. The good ones are below.
