HIP AND FIT HALLOWEEN
1. Think small, so you can eat the whole thing. A "fun size" candy bar is a good choice. Most weigh in at around 80-100 calories per piece. Set the limit at 2 (or 3, if they're bite size).
2. Read the labels. Don't assume a non-chocolate candy, like licorice, is a lower calorie choice than chocolate. In fact, a regular size pack of red licorice has the same calories as a full size pack of M&Ms (240 cal).
3. Buy candy that's fun to play with, but much less interesting to finish. Candy necklaces and bracelets, PEZ, ring pops, or lollypop whistles are all things that kids start eating and then turn into more of a playtoy.
5. Try something new if you do not want to give out candy. Try small bottles of water (kids are always thirsty and sweating a lot under their costumes). Individual bags of pretzels or chips are also popular.
