No Christmas stocking would be complete without edible goodies. However, if you’re concerned about feeding your family natural, organic products you don’t have to make an exception on Christmas. The following healthy stocking stuffer ideas will fulfill your child’s (or favorite adult’s) sweet tooth without being bad for their health.
What Christmas stocking would be complete without chocolate? Just make sure it’s the natural kind, like Justin`s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. They’re organic and though they might not taste exactly like Reese’s peanut butter cups, they are surprisingly delicious. It’s kind of hard to go wrong when combining chocolate and peanut butter.
You can buy them in a case of 12 so there’ll be plenty to fill stockings and have some left over for yourself, too!
Who ever heard of a lollipop that is good for your teeth? We have, and they’re called Xyla Grape Lollipops. These suckers are sweetened with xylitol rather than sugar and are downright delicious. They will leave the Christmas stocking stuffed with something healthy instead of sugary. Since the lollipops come individually wrapped without any mention of them not being the real deal, the fact that this candy is healthy can be your little secret.
Xylitol is a completely natural sweetener that has been proven to reduce cavities by a third with regular consumption and also reduces the incidence of ear infections. It has no aftertaste and is great for diabetics because of its low glycemic index.
For something fun, YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears are a great stocking stuffer for any family member who loves candy. They’re organic, gluten free, and one serving provides 100% of the daily value of vitamin C.
Almost everyone loves jelly beans, but most brands are full of artificial colors and other unwanted ingredients. Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans to the rescue! Make your stocking recipients squeal with delight over these delicious but natural jelly beans.
For the dark chocolate and coffee lovers on your list, Green & Black’s Espresso, Organic Dark Chocolate with Coffee is a delicious treat. There’s something about coffee and chocolate that’s as perfect as chocolate and peanut butter.
These bars are made in Italy and combine organic dark chocolate with espresso.
A great little stocking stuffer, Endangered Species Bug Bites, Organic Milk Chocolate are bite sized organic milk chocolate treats. In addition to stocking stuffers, they are great sweet snacks to carry in a purse or in a lunch box.
Choose from organic milk and dark chocolate Bug Bites and Chimp Mints, seasonal milk and dark chocolate Treats, or flavored dark chocolates. Bite-sized chocolates make great wedding or party favors, lunchbox treats, or snack for office or home.
