How to Handle the Candy: The Great Pumpkin
Know what's not fleeting? And what you would like to forget? The sugar meltdowns that go along with consuming all that candy. Unfortunately, most Halloween candy is loaded with gmos and chemicals (Food Babe did a nice post about this here and Huffpo has one here). There are some great alternatives, but even the good stuff is still sugary, so I find it best to curb consumption. What we do at our house is choose some candy to consume after trick or treating, then put the rest in a bag on the porch for the Great Pumpkin, who leaves a small gift in exchange for the candy. It works great for us; my son gets more excited about the GP than the candy.
