Bake up some healthy Halloween fun

October 22, 2013
By Katie Wilhelmi RD, LD , The Journal

With Halloween just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get the kids together for some spooky, fright-filled baking and cooking. Of course, Halloween is known to be a sugar-laden candy fest, making this is a perfect opportunity to talk to your kids about moderation and healthy eating. Halloween, and all its fabulous chocolaty, gooey, sweetness is a once-a-year occasion. Use this opportunity to talk to your kids and explain to them that candy, like many of our other favorite treats, is a "sometimes" food. "Sometimes" foods aren't foods we eat every day because they don't give our bodies the nutrients we need to grow and stay healthy. We enjoy "sometimes foods" on occasion, and because we enjoy them only once in a while, it makes them that much more special.
