Learn how to teach your kids about enjoying candy in moderation. 

Halloween is almost here! But before you let your kids dig into their Halloween candy, it’s important to bear your child’s health in mind. While sugary treats may be delicious, they’re full of sugar and fat that can have negative health impacts on your children. When it comes to your child’s Halloween candy consumption this year, teach them about developing a healthy relationship with sweets. Check out what you need to know about eating Halloween candy in moderation.

Control Portion Size. 

There is such thing as too much of a good thing. When it comes to Halloween candy, it’s high in calories, and it’s full of sugar and fat. Allowing your kids to eat too much candy can lead to health issues down the line. However, depriving them of candy altogether can cause your child to develop an unhealthy relationship with food. The key to keeping your kid’s sweet tooth satisfied without compromising your child’s health is to eat sweets in moderation. Allow your kids to eat candy, but ensure that they don’t go overboard. Keep portion size in mind and limit consumption to one or two pieces totaling in 100 calories.

Swap Out Candy for Toys.

There’s no rule that you have to give out candy on Halloween. Switch up tradition with a healthier option. Give out Halloween toys instead. From stickers and temporary tattoos to bouncy balls and spider rings, there are lots of Halloween goodies that come without lots of calories and sugar.
