7 Tips For a Happy, Healthier Halloween

Halloween Survival Guide

You already know what Halloween is all about: costumes, pumpkins, candy and often unhealthy snacks. This year, be prepared so you and your family don’t hit a giant sugar crash on November 1.

1. Procrastination Is Good On Halloween
Buy candy for the trick-or-treaters last minute so it’s not sitting in your pantry for weeks tempting you and your kids to indulge early  ORhalloween

2. Pass Out Healthy, Non-Candy Options
The parents will appreciate it and you will have less temptation! Some great ideas: snack packs of all-fruit strips, natural gummies or pretzels with no added sugar. Pencils, crayons, stickers, glow sticks, and false teeth are unique, fun options as well!

3. What To Do At The Halloween Party
Bring a veggie tray, a fruit platter, bean dip, or guacamole with sweet potato and quinoa chips. Want to get creative? Serve it in an orange bell pepper to give it Halloween spirit. While at the party, avoid the mixed drinks at the bar and steer away from the processed foods, high-carb foods, and unhealthy fats.

4. Don’t Trick-or-Treat Hungry
Trick-or-trick after a healthy, home-cooked meal so you and your kids don’t fill up on candy or eat candy along the way.

5. Fit In A Full Workout
Plan to workout first thing in the morning so you still get your usual workout routine in. It’s recommended to get your kids moving before trick-or-treating, too. If you’re planning the  Halloween Party, plan activities that involve physical activity for the kids and for the adults.

6. Donate The Extra Candy
Allow your children to keep a few treats, then bring the rest (especially the ones you know they don’t like) to the office for your co-workers to enjoy.

7. Stick With Your Healthy Routine
Even if you cheat slightly on October 31, get right back on track. Do not have the mindset that because you  cheated once, you have to quit everything you have done thus far. You still have this!
