To trick or treat?

31 Oct
Yes I want kids my to trick or treat, have a good time, get dressed up and tour around this Halloween. It’s fun and I don’t want to be a wet blanket (although I could dress up as one easily considering the weather)

On the other hand, the mass amount of candy….wrapped in plastic…full ora ingredients has me shaking my head….alot!

artificial ingredients has me shaking my head….alot

So, the question is how to I reconcile these issues as a parent and Naturopathic Doctor in Mississauga?
Yes we do go out and have fun. My kids are now used to the idea that after the walk about, we come back, dump all of the candy on the floor. We have a throw away pile, a ‘daddy’ pile and their pile (which happens to be the smallest of course). With the throw away pile I have treats that I trade with them that are colour-free and artificial ingredient free. They gobble those up faster than a turkey and all is well.
Happy Halloween to you all!
