    What they don’t want is for their child to indulge in all the free candy that comes their way.

    We’ve compiled a list of 10 of the “healthiest” Halloween sweets, so keep these in mind when stocking your cabinets for Trick-Or-Treaters, and when picking and choosing what’s suitable for your own kid.
