While whether or not your city is holding Halloween this year might still be a maybe, chances are there’s a significant amount of candy being passed around your household as we speak.

This October, we thought it would be a good idea over here at Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center to remind everyone (and even ourselves) to put our candy and processed sugar consumption in check.

First, opt for naturally sweet treats — dried mango, pineapple, banana, and papaya are all solid options. Create your own little trail mix for yourself and maybe throw in some walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, etc. for a health boost.

Second, double down on clean eating — keep clean whole food in your refrigerator, for instance.

If you must do chocolate, opt for dark chocolate, which is a powerful source of antioxidants and may even have a hand in reducing heart disease. Who’d have thunk it!

If you’re participating in Halloween or doing some sort of socially-distant alternative, try to opt out of supplying others with sugary candy that will damage the teeth and the health of those who avidly eat it.

Pass out healthy snacks this Halloween — maybe some of that trail mix we mentioned earlier.
