While everyone should enjoy some sweets on Halloween, if you're looking for ways to make it just a bit less indulgent, follow along for some scary good alternatives!
Hydration is key when it comes to any big holiday meals. Since thirst can contribute to hunger, if you're properly hydrated the chances of overindulging are lower. Carry around a water bottle while you're out trick or treating and encourage your kiddos to do the same!
This is another way to reduce your cravings and hunger for sugar, so you can enjoy and indulge but not feel like you're ravenous. Even just a light healthy meal before heading out for the night can make a world of a difference and reduce the sugar high that will inevitably occur. If you're having people over, choose some spooky healthy snacks like these to make it more appealing to the kiddos!
Space it Out
Have the kids split up their candy so it doesn't all get eaten on night one. Make it fun! Have everyone rate which ones they like to best and line them up best to worst. Do a candy exchange with friends. Then set a limit so they can enjoy a treat everyday in balance, making the whole experience longer and more enjoyable for everyone.
