Now that Thanksgiving is over, we’re in full swing Halloween mode!
Halloween is such a great night of getting dressed up, walking the neighbourhood, running into friends, and sheer childhood excitement. The huge bags of candy that come home is where the challenges can arise.
It’s not Halloween candy specifically that is the problem, it’s that candy, sugar, junk food and juice are the norm in many social activities, school fundraisers and events. They’re too often used as a reward, entertainment and a sign of our love! No wonder it becomes something our kids beg for and expect at every event!
