Wondering how much candy was eaten for Easter?
Did you know that chocolate Easter eggs are the most popular Easter treats!
Easter candy eating is only topped by Halloween!
16 billion jelly beans were sold this year.
We do love our candy. But holiday candy is fine, just like anything else, in moderation. It also offers a good opportunity to talk with your children about "once in a while treats" and how they fit in a healthy diet. Too much of sugary treat is not really good for the body.
Use this sugary holiday as a time to teach children to enjoy treats in moderation. Donate the extra candy to your local fire department or police station as a way to say thank you!
Nourish Thought for the Day:
IA healthy diet has room for treats as long as they are once in a while and don't replace the healthy foods.
