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 this 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!

Join us as we share suggestions to help take the trick out of their treats. Click on the podcast button below to listen.

Low glycemic foods include above-ground dark green vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, and spinach, as well as avocados, nuts, and some fruits, such as blueberries and cranberries. White bread, potatoes, rice, sugary drinks, fruits such as bananas and citrus, and below-ground vegetables such as carrots and beets are high glycemic foods that are known to raise insulin levels into the danger zone. Indeed, many of us have already experienced the severe “low energy letdown” that typically happens when we consume large doses of sugar or other high glycemic foods.
