Kids’ Health on Halloween
October 29, 2009
ENJOY A HEALTHY BALANCE.
Balance the fun of this holiday with your worries about your kids’ health. Be diligent about handwashing, and it’s okay to enjoy a few pieces of wrapped candy. Limiting excess sugar this season is not only smart, but safe, when it comes to everyone’s health. Did you know it can decrease immunity when you eat sugar in large amounts?
Instead of a candy binge on Halloween night, ask your kids for their ideas on how they can enjoy it over a period of time. You might be surprised at what they come up with!
