Although Halloween can be a lot of fun, it can also be dangerous to those of us trying to live a healthy life. I’m all about moderation, so I see nothing wrong with a few pieces of candy on the 31st, but let’s keep it at a few pieces! Looking for more healthy Halloween tips?
- Go trick or treating WITH your kids – it’s fun for you and them and it’s an automatic walk – great way to up your activity level
- Visit a corn maze or a haunted woods. Physical activity and fun!
- Have a healthy dinner prepared BEFORE the trick or treating commences. Chili, soup or a nice salad will help fill you up and make the bags of candy less desirable.
- Chew gum while you are out trick or treating with your kids – you’re less likely to steal a piece of candy or two if your mouth is already busy chewing.
