In Ohio, 33.3% of kids are overweight or at risk for becoming overweight and this number is increasing every year. As parents, we need to limit children’s consumption of candy year-round so now is a good time to discuss the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle and the ramifications of an unhealthy one.
Here’s some Healthy Halloween options – you may not be the favorite candy house on the block but at least you’ll feel good about the fact that you’re not sending the neighbor kids into sugar oblivion.
- Packages of trail mix
- Cereal or energy bars
- Small boxes of raisins or dried fruit
- Halloween pencils or pens
- Spooky stickers, tattoos, or spider rings
Enjoy a Healthy Halloween!!
