Trick the Kids with Healthy Treats

Submitted by Dr. Jennifer Trachtenberg.

As parents gear up for the Halloween season, calorie and sugar overload is a major concern as princesses and monsters are handed piece after piece of candy. Some families may think Halloween is only one day a year to “splurge” on treats but teaching kids to seek out nutritious treats during Halloween and throughout the year can influence a lifetime of good decisions and weight management.

Pediatrician Jennifer Trachtenberg, MD, FAAP, mother of three and author of Good Kids, Bad Habits: The RealAge Guide to Raising Healthy Children is recommending some tips and treats that will help parents make Halloween healthier without being booed by the kids.
