Mom, Can I Have Some Halloween Candy?

halloweenDiabetes, Children, and Halloween

Jerry Seinfeld said that when he was a kid, Halloween was about three things: Get candy. Get candy. Get candy. Of course, a child with diabetes can’t indulge in candy like most kids can. Does that mean he has to miss out on all the fun? No, according to Barbara Morrison, BSN, RN, the Diabetes Education Program Coordinator at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. “There are many possible approaches to helping kids with diabetes enjoy Halloween, without the adverse side effects,” says Morrison.

Have your child attend a Halloween event at his or her child’s school or in your local community. These are good because the focus is more about costumes, having fun and participating in games and less about candy. If your child will go out for trick or treating, exchange some of the candy for a toy or a small amount of money. Also, a parent can keep some of the loot and fit it into the child’s meal plan. With carbohydrate counting and fast-acting insulin, a reasonable amount of candy can be accommodated into a well-balanced diet.
