Day 213- Nutrition Bite

Trick-or-Treat: Does a fun size package of Starburst (2 chews) have more calories than a large banana? The answer is the treat (True)! Starburst candies have 140 calories and a large banana has 125. Food exchange or gift exchange is not a bad idea when the kids return home from trick-or -treating. Candy consumption can be tricky to control, so monitor those treats!!

Sugar Preacher's Experience

I have a friend who is setting up a 'Halloween Store'. She purchased small gifts, wrapped them up, and priced them with a candy value. The children can then purchase the gifts with their halloween candy. I think it is a great idea!! Creativity is a key unless you want to be tricked!!
