Did you know the average child collects between 3,500 to 7,000 calories worth of candy on Halloween?
But, a good trick to beating the extra treats is feeding your kids a healthy snack or meal before heading out the door.
This will reduce the temptation to overindulge on candy when trick-or-treating.
