Christine Avanti on a healthy Halloween

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.

i am the last guy to be a legalist, but why are we discussing Holloween on a Christian radio station.
am i the only parent who does not allow my child to participate on satans day?
seems more and more parents these days have less discernment of spiritual matters
