7,000 Calories!

What? Yes, this is the average amount of calories in candy a single child will collect on Halloween.
It will take 44 hours of walking for a 100lb child to use up that calorie load. Just sayin’!

Before your child dives into the stash, ask them when they are going to fit in 44 hours of walking this week.

What to do?  Everything in moderation is the good way to approach the holidays. Pick out his/her favorite treat, one per day, and have it along with a small healthy snack.  That way they get a bit of the goodies, but also have other foods in their system to counterbalance the sugar rush in their blood stream.
