A healthier Halloween 🎃 🍭🍫🍬

Hello everyone!  

A healthy Halloween... Is such a thing even possible?  Absolutely!  Below are some ideas, tips and tricks for a healthier Halloween.


Halloween candy

  1. If you or your children are going trick-or-treating, pay attention to the size of the trick-or-treat bag, and keep it small.  This means no pillowcases!  They can hold way too much candy.
  2. Before trick-or-treating, have a healthy meal.  If everyone is full, there will be less chance of eating along the way.  Children should always wait until they get home to eat any of their candy so that parents can inspect them first.
  3. When you’re buying candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters, eliminate temptation by buying candy you don’t like, and buy it at the last minute.
  4. Choose non-food items like the ones you’d find in a child’s birthday goodie bag; items like stickers, sidewalk chalk, small packs of crayons, noisemakers or costume jewellery.
  5. Walk, instead of driving the car from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.
  6. Halloween goodies should be stored in a cupboard, ‘out of sight, out of mind’, for children and adults alike.
  7. If you have kids, be a good role model by moderating your own candy consumption.  Enjoy one or two small pieces at a time, and allow your children to do the same.


Remember that Halloween, like other holidays, is just one day of the year.

By eating candy in moderation, taking necessary precautions, providing healthy alternatives, and integrating a little physical activity, you can have a happy, healthy, and fun Halloween!  If you make healthy eating a habit, a few days of overindulgence is perfectly fine, and should be enjoyed!
