What Dr. Hamilton could say on
Healthy Halloween Options:

Here we go, and here comes the start of the holidays! Halloween is upon us, and it’s important to look at healthier options if you’re concerned about the extra consumption of sugar, fat, and calories. Here are some healthy Halloween tips:

    • The best option is to go with hard candy or fruit snacks. Smarties are one of the best options, according to dieticians, followed by tootsie rolls.
    • Other options include airheads and sour patches—they have higher sugar content but are lower than others and have no fat.
    • For chocolate options, stick to dark chocolate, which has great antioxidant benefits and is packed with fiber as well as other nutrient-rich benefits. Choose chocolate with at least 70% cocoa; anything less than that has a benefit decrease and contains too much sugar.
    • Try non-sugar options, and one of my favorites is peppermints. Peppermints actually have many benefits, such as being an antioxidant and can also help with tummy cramps, nausea, headaches, and cravings.
