Better-For-You HalloweenThis is no trick. This Halloween can be a better-for-you holiday, whether you’re out collecting treats or hosting a holiday party at home.

Super 1 Foods offers the NuVal® Nutritional Scoring System in-store to help consumers find and compare the most “spook-tacular” treats that are both delicious and nutritious. NuVal scores, found near product price tags, rank food items from 1 to 100 for overall wellness – the higher the score, the better the nutrition.

Here are some tips to help you have a more nutritious Halloween and autumn festivities:

  • Shop Better – Bring fall flavor to your party with fresh apples (NuVal 100), roasted pumpkin seeds (NuVal 67) or fresh air-popped popcorn (NuVal 91).
  • Cook Better – Without a doubt, Halloween is a sugary treat-heavy holiday. Try some of the low-sugar, low-fat Halloween treats from
  • Eat Better – Make sure the kids load up on fiber-dense fruits and vegetables before treating door-to-door. Those foods keep them fuller longer.
  • Feel Better – An “oldie but goodie” apple-bobbing contest is a fun and natural party game. Have the kids slice their treats in a low-fat yogurt dip. It’s a great way help them feel better with healthy carbohydrates topped with dairy-rich protein.
