Sugar can be found in corn syrup, glucose, dextrose, fructose etc. Children should intake 25 grams of sugar per day as it is recommended by the WHO. It’s no wonder that the scariest thing about Halloween is sugar. Children collect too much candy which means they intake a lot of sugar. In this article, we’re here to present you a little plan to help you not to worry that much for your next Halloween!
First, you need to give your children a dinner that will be high in fiber before they begin with trick or treating. Fiber is what we need to decrease the absorption of sugar and that’s what we need on Halloween. You can prepare, for example, refried bean burritos.
Make sure you take a look at all of the candy they’ve brought home. Then, trade with them. You can trade for let’s say, 25 cents per piece. Suggest them what they can buy with the money they got in exchange for the candy.
After they eat a lot of candy, make sure they drink a lot of water. It’s very important. They should all brush their teeth before they go to bed and get into their pajamas. If you do this every holiday, prepared like this, you’ll see that you won’t have to be worried about the sugar anymore.
