As a mom, I know handing out candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween is both fun and expected. But as a pediatrician, I want to remind parents to pay attention to how much candy your kids are consuming and to consider mixing in alternatives to candy for the trick-or-treaters that knock on your door.
In this video, I provide parents with some fun and creative alternatives to candy for trick-or-treaters. If you have some other ideas, post a comment below. I would love to hear from you!
