The trick to a good Halloween is to eat a good dinner. Sending kids out trick-or-treating on a full stomach decreases the chance they will want to binge on their goodies when they get home. You may be surprised how much sugar is hiding in your child's pumpkin full of Halloween candy.
We know you are busy, so plan ahead an easy meal, like a bowl of whole-wheat pasta or a quick peanut butter and banana sandwich. Select a couple of meal ideas and ask your kids to choose which one they would like to eat. You can even prep the meal the night before, which will leave you more time for family fun!
