How to Have a Healthier Halloween

Halloween is to children what Thanksgiving is to adults - all overeating, sugar highs, and quick crashes. Some studies have even shown that the average American child will consume four thousand, eight hundred to seven thousand calories throughout the entire evening of sugar frosted fun.

The key to a healthy child doesn’t have to begin and end with a pillow case full of resented apples. From home-made recipes that still use sugar – just not as much – to physical activities that will help to work off the calories, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the season wjthout the tummy aches.
