It’s that time of year again for witches, goblins, pumpkin spice and trick-or-treat. It’s also the time of year candy and confectionery companies try to outdo each other with their own versions of a sugar bomb to tempt our kids and frustrate our efforts to keep them on a healthy diet.
I am not trying to be the party spoiler of Halloween and holiday seasons, but we can no longer afford to ignore that our children’s health is at risk. So, the anticipated candy shortage as a bad thing.
As you know, Halloween is just around the corner. I recently blogged about how to make Halloween healthy but fun for your kids and how to moderate their sugar intake without being the sugar police!
If you are a parent, chances are you’re still staring at a sizeable pile of sugary snacks from the Halloween haul. Try as you might, it is never easy to convince your child to part ways with their knapsack full of candy.
Fall is in the air, and so is the unmistakable aroma of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. Nowadays it seems that pumpkin spice and pumpkin-flavored products are as synonymous with autumn as sweaters and fireplaces.
It’s Halloween time again! And if you really want a good fright, you can do it for free and with far less preparation and effort than you probably put into your Halloween celebrations. All you need to do to be really scared is take a few minutes to look at how many of us take care of our health. The reality is that we may not be doing nearly enough to prevent disease or to better manage any chronic diseases we may already have. We can be doing so much more but don’t, and that is very scary!
