Kids will be trick-or-treating, picking up sugary treats and chocolate at each house they stop at. It's also quite likely that parents will eat some of the goodies themselves, with the convenient excuse being that they are just trying to save their children from eating too much sugar.
"It is sad to hear parents arguing with their kids about how much candy the kids eat when the parents are the ones taking them trick or treating. Whatever your plan is, it needs to be discussed before you go out," said registered dietitian Sarah Krieger, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and a mother of three in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Almost all children in this country and half of adults will eat candy on Halloween this year, which means lots of extra cavities and trips to the dentist.
"The dentist tells them not to eat any candy that's too sticky or chewy because it impacts the sealants on their teeth which prevents cavities. They know to hand the sticky stuff over to me. I want them to have great teeth," Krieger says in the report.
While its true that eating too much candy causes tooth decay, there is at least one other fun part of Halloween besides trick-or-treating.
Everyone can enjoy dressing up in their favorite fun costumes this year. No longer is Halloween a holiday that is enjoyed just by children.
Just about everyone dresses up in a costume on Halloween, not just young kids. It's a tradition that can be enjoyed by folks of all ages, and that's exactly what the WMMA community has honed in on this year.
Invicta FC strawweight champ Carla Esparza recently took to Twitter and Facebook to post photos of herself in a gorgeous Halloween costume, and Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc also got in on the fun by posting a pic of herself in zombie attire.
