The Unhealthiest Halloween Candy for Kids
Halloween will be here before you know it. Wherever you turn for the next couple of weeks, candy may be all around you.According to a article from Women's Day, here are some of the unhealthiest candy options for your little ghosts and goblins. Nutritionists and Dentists contributed to this unhealthy list. I can't bring myself to say worst Halloween candies, since more than a few of my favorites made the list.
Snickers. The caramel can get stuck between your teeth and can cause serious tooth decay. Chocolate is also loaded with fat and calories.
Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups contain just 88 calories per piece. Each Peanut Butter Pumpkin contains a whopping 180 calories.
Candy Corn. You knew this had to be on the list. Candy Corn contains only sugar, artificial flavor and coloring.
Tootsie Pops. You're keeping sugar in your mouth by trying to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop which of course could lead to tooth decay.
Skittles. The ingredients for Skittles are sugar, corn syrup, trans fat and artificial colors.
Halloween only comes once a year so, it may be OK to gorge yourself with candy for a day or two! Have a happy and safe Halloween!
