How to Have a Healthy Halloween

Useful Tips to Try

halloween-kidIt’s estimated that during the week of Halloween, Americans purchase 90 million pounds of chocolate. However, candy is what we call “empty calories,” meaning that it has no nutritional benefit. This is why consuming candy in large quantities can often lead to weight gain.

Furthermore, have you experienced a nauseous, tired, dizzy feeling in the morning? That’s called hypoglycemia. Your body is trying to compensate for the amount of sugar in your blood stream with insulin.

This year, put a spooky spin on your Halloween festivities with these non-candy treats that trick-or- treaters are sure to love:

  • Temporary tattoos
  • Stickers
  • Pencils
  • Glow sticks
  • Bubbles
  • Bouncy balls
  • Play dough/Silly Putty
