Tricks To Enjoy Your Halloween Treats
10/30/2012 1:31:44 PM

Happy Halloween! Halloween is celebrated by millions of people and is a fun time for dressing up and for kids to go door-to-door trick-or-treating resulting in large amounts of candy!  For the kids this is great, for the parents sometimes Halloween can turn into a nutrition nightmare.  As a parent you work all year long to try and instill good nutrition and healthy eating habits with your kids.  It might feel like this one-day of the year comes around and ruins it all.  Let me assure you that one day of splurging on candy- even one week of eating candy will not ruin years of work on healthy eating.  The same is true for you too!  However, if you find yourself reaching for the candy bowl too frequently, or if you are concerned about you kid’s candy consumption then read on for some tricks on how to enjoy your Halloween treats.

Clarity About Health At Every Size

I recently attended the professional conference for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in Philadelphia.  This conference, known as the Food & Nutrition Expo and Conference (FNCE), hosts about 10,000 dietitians annually.  This year in Philadelphia it was no different and a large group of dietitians converged on the area for the opportunity to network, increase our knowledge, hone our practice as dietitians, and- let’s not forget the expo- pick up some nutrition related swag.  Now the purpose of this post is not to write about this conference; the purpose of this post is to address a question presented in a session that I attended.  The topic of the session was something along the lines of the importance of happiness and satisfaction with your diet.  The comment that spurred this post was:  “I am a dietitian for the depart of health and human services and I am really concerned about the fat acceptance movement.  I am concerned that if people feel too good about themselves that they will not try to lose weight.”
