Trick Kids into Healthy Treats for Halloween
Getting your kids to gobble goodies that are good for them!
A Dose of Parental Guidance
As a parent, it is best to establish a plan of how all this candy will be
consumed. Ideally, the distribution of the candy will be the parent's
responsibility, otherwise, you may find meals skipped in preference to candy
fests. Dole it out in moderation. If you have a very active child who is of
normal weight, you can be more generous but not so much that it affects their
appetite. Remember, kids are growing and need lots of nutrients that are not
found in candy. Candy needs to be considered a treat, to be consumed after
satisfying the body's need for vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
