Can Halloween be healthy? Consider these numbers:

3 mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have more sugar than a glazed doughnut

1/2  pack of Skittles has more sugar than a scoop of Haagen-Dazs Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

9 Twizzlers contain the same amount of calories as a Wendy’s Double Stack Burger

 

Consider some new options to Halloween that are Gluten Free!

* Fruit Roll-ups (Betty Crocker Halloween fruit flavored snacks – gluten free)

* Granola Bars (Nutrigrain Cereal bars are gluten free)

* Gold Fish packages (gluten free)

* Cheese and Cracker Packages (Keebler Snax Stix are gluten free)

* Sugar Free Gum – (Bazooka and Super Bubble are gluten free)
