Last year we provided low-value kids toys, etc., such as temporary tattoo kits, and such. Some kids didn't take anything and were wondering what the hell was going on. So I told the parents point blank that we were not going to contribute toward the obesity epidemic. Most parents nodded in agreement and others said nothing. Regardless they all know they can just get their fill at the neighboring houses. Oh well.
Nonetheless, hope the kids have a safe and enjoyable Halloween!
Some ideas to hand out to the kids as candy alternatives:
- swedish meatballs
- steak, chicken, lamb tips
- tripe strips
- asic made from beef tallow and lard
- pork rinds
- fish oil tablets
- kettle-bell instructional pamphlets, etc.
