While I have to agree that far too many children are woefully overweight, and many are obese, perhaps Halloween isn't the time to drive home the message that their parents should be doing a better job of providing them with healthier food choices. After all, this holiday is for children and to punish them by withholding candy, instead of those who are really to blame, i.e. the parents, is bordering on cruel. Much better would be to set an example by giving out only nutritious treats, such as small bags of homemade trail mix, and hope that the parents of the chubby kids will get the message.4 months ago
