Yes to Halloween Candy?

Yes to Halloween Candy? Teach your kids how to eat their Halloween candy in moderate amounts. Start by sitting down and talking to your kids about how much candy is reasonable for a day and when during the day they would like to have the candy. Agreeing on set parameters beforehand is important in helping your children feel like a part of the decision. When they get home from trick-or-treating, ask them to separate the treats into two piles: favorites and not-so-favorites. Allow them to enjoy some from each pile, according to the agreed upon plan.
