fall family Halloween Wordless Wednesday

Happy Halloween – #WordlessWednesday with #linky on a Tuesday

 

Halloween is on October 31, which falls on a Saturday this year. In our suburban Chicago town Trick or Treat hours are from 3pm until 7pm – a full four hours.  For my children (ages 9, 8, 6 and 4), four hours is a long time and I doubt their little legs will keep up the whole time.

After Halloween we explain to our children why candy is bad for them and limit it to one or two pieces a day.  By Thanksgiving we put all the leftover Halloween candy together in a bowl.  The leftover candy is used as a reward for when our children go above and beyond what is expected of them.  Candy and surgery snacks are special treats in our home and reserved for special occasions like holidays and birthdays.

How do you teach your kids about healthy eating during the holidays? How much candy do you allow your kids to eat on Halloween? Are you dressing up for Halloween or just your kids?  Here at the Healthy Moms Magazine we wish all of our readers a happy and safe Halloween.

    We have lived in a rural desert setting for over 20 years. We always just have a Halloween party at home. Not enough people to go around for tricker treating. We found we liked it better. We buy just what we need, and the candy the kids liked best.

    My kids dump out their candy, split it all up. Then we’re like you…the get a few per day. We never walk around that long. This year may possibly be different because Mica’s meeting up with a friend. We’ll be with him to. His friend may want to walk around more than we do.

    The weather isn’t supposed to be very good on Halloween here, so I don’t know how long my kids are going to handle walking around this year. Thanks for stopping by Alissa. Have a great week!
