Most of the children across the state who plan to celebrate Halloween already have determined what super hero, Disney princess or television character they plan to dress up as for the fun-filled night. They have planned what neighborhoods in which to trick-or-treat so they can fill their candy containers to the brim with sugary, sticky and sweet treats. While the children are excited about trick-or-treating, many parents may be wondering how all of this candy will fit into a healthy eating plan, especially when childhood obesity is at an all-time high, said Janice Hermann, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension nutrition specialist.
