Courtney on Health Halloween Edition

’Tis the season for ghosts, goblins, Jack O’Lanterns and all things spooky. Bags of assorted Milky Ways, Candy Corn, Hershey’s Chocolate, Sour Patch Kids and my favorite, Reese’s Peanut butter cups (yes, there is peanut butter in Reeses, isn’t that healthy?) are flying off the shelves. 

Consumers are expected to spend 3 billion dollars on candy this year, and over half of all parents stash Halloween candy to enjoy after the holiday, (again, love Reeses). Yup, candy is on everyone’s minds for better or worse. How much of what we are eating this fall will add to our body weight. During the holiday season we need to be conscious of maintaining healthy balanced diet. Courtney will give us information about how we can do that and watch our weight during this time of year. Don’t get spooked!  Watch out for the tricks and enjoy the treats!
