Negotiating the Candy Bonanza


As fun as Halloween will be with a preschooler who loves dress up, I am dreading negotiating the candy bonanza. And while it will be difficult to control what lands in Laurel’s bucket, I plan on managing intake on our end by preparing a good dinner before trick or treating, and by passing out alternative goodies (thanks for the lead, Moms’ Buzz!). If you’re hosting a Halloween gathering, Michelle offers a few spooky party recipes (lower in sugar and fat than typical recipes), as well as a tasty inspiration to recycle your pumpkin after the fact.
