String cheese is a low-calorie treat that's high in protein and bone-building, teeth-reinforcing calcium. One stick of mozzarella or a mozzarella-cheddar cheese blend packs just 80 calories and fulfills 20 percent of the daily recommended serving of calcium for a 2,000-calorie diet.

Because it's a dairy product that can spoil much quicker than cereal or trail mix, you'll want to keep string cheese refrigerated until your trick-or-treater is ready to eat it. The protein and fat in these slim goodies slows down the metabolism of sugars and carbohydrates found in candy and starches, so pairing this healthy Halloween treat with a piece of candy will minimize a sugar high and provide sustained energy rather than a quick meltdown.
