Candy is at the core of Halloween. Never fear: We’re not going to tell you that you can’t have any. But you can fill up instead on healthy Halloween treats and avoid a scary sugar shock to your system.
Here are some holiday eats both sweet and savory. Everyone can find something to enjoy goblin up! (ba-dum ching)

Fill up before you dive into a bag of Hershey’s miniatures with this twist on a cozy fall fave: Butternut Squash and Tomato Soup.
Add some bubble, bubble without toil or trouble: Cut the calories in your apple cider with a splash of sparkling water.
The candy corn-and-peanuts mix that coworkers bring into the breakroom at this time of year is devilishly good but densely caloric. Dilute that evil and mix in a giant bag of microwave kettle corn.
