ECOWEEN: Dakota Gourmet Sunflower Seeds

Seasonal candies create a lot of wrappers and tummy aches, so switch out traditional treats for those that give back. From healthy alternatives to organic fair trade chocolates, this week lilsugar's all about Eco-treats! Whether your tot is headed to a preschool party or you are passing out goodies for trick-or-treaters, consider Nature's candy — and I don't mean raisins.

Dakota Gourmet sells individually wrapped sunflower seed packs in lightly salted or honey roasted varieties that offer a great source of vitamin E. Inside each five-pack ($3), there's a pack of Burpee sunflower seeds to plant with your child. What better way to teach your tykes the concept of renewable resources than by replenishing your supply of goodies?
