It’s funny how the month of October has crept up on us and soon Halloween will roll around with haunted houses, jack-o-lanterns, scary goblins, adorable princess costumes, and plenty of candy treats. If you are looking to settle into a healthier lifestyle and eating pattern, set aside the “treats” because the trick is in the treat for healthy eating with snacks from Dippin’ Stix.

It is often difficult to maintain a healthy eating pattern, particularly with the upcoming holidays. You may not want to keep your kids from the fun of trick-or-treating, but it may be in their best interest if the treats are eaten sparingly and over an extended period of time. Follow a few simple steps for healthy eating with delicious snacks that contain fewer calories, sugar, and fat content:

  1. Instead of having several small sweet snacks after your meal, stick to just one to please your palate.
  2. When you arrive home from trick-or-treating, be certain to go through the abundant supply of candy and check for foreign objects first—then ration the treats out to avoid over-indulgence.
  3. Obviously, fruits and vegetables are a much more nutritious treat than a snack-size candy bar. Keep your refrigerator stocked with plenty of fruits and vegetables so they are available to grab and go.
  4. Lead by example. Chances are if your kids see you eating healthy, they will join you. You really can’t expect your kids to eat healthy while you enjoy sweet treats and salty chips.

If you are preparing for trick-or-treating AND a healthy lifestyle and eating pattern, remember that the trick is in the treat. Indulging in too many sweets and treats loaded with carbs and sugar is not going to help you meet your goals of weight loss, maintaining your weight, or just sticking to a healthy eating pattern.
