Once a rare treat, sugar is now a dietary staple in modern society.  Today, mountains of research clearly show that sugar suppresses the body’s immune system, spikes insulin levels, slows the release of growth hormones, and triggers hunger, weight gain, and dental cavities, just to name a few of the ways that sugar can be destructive to your family’s health.

And next week brings us Halloween, the annual candy-fest that you can actually use as a “sweet” opportunity to teach your children lessons in health and nutrition.  With a little planning and foresight, you can help your kids manage their Halloween spoils, moderate their sugar consumption and impart some terrific nutritional good sense in the process!

Today on LivingFuelTV, join us as we share suggestions to help take the trick out of their treats. Click on the graphic below to watch.
