It’s going to be a different Halloween than usual this year- but then what isn’t?
But maybe this could be turned into a positive? Still celebrate, have fun with the kids but with less focus sweets. Let’s concentrate on inventing some new rituals and spooky fun?
· the kids won’t be buzzing on a sugar high and you won’t be tempted to fall off the wagon
· if you do buy some sweets, do it at the last minute and opt for stuff you don’t particularly like.
· Don’t be tempted to buy the half price sweets on offer after Halloween. You don’t want to eat them and your kids will be better off without them too.
Make this the best Halloween ever:
