Okay. So, this isn’t the message where you are going to hear about ways to eat a little less candy, and I am certainly not the nutrition expert who’s going to tell you the “right” kind of candy to eat. Just because Raisinettes have raisins or candy corn is fat free doesn’t make it good for you. Nope!! So here’s the message you actually need to hear. Don’t eat it. You read me right. Don’t eat it. Just don’t even go there. Your blood sugar and your butt can thank me later…

Don't get tricked! Treat your body to real foods and you'll feel real good. Here are simple steps for dealing with Halloween CandyThe first step to not eating all that candy is not keep any candy in your house. If you don’t buy it, you won’t try it! After trick-or-treating, have your kid’s exchange their candy for cash (maybe like 5 or 10 cents for each piece they trade in) or have them leave it outside their bedroom where it will be exchanged for a small non-candy treat while they are sleeping. Then, get it out of your house!!
