With Halloween right around the corner, I’m met with a certain ambivalence. My 20-month old, Nate, is so very aware of what everyone around him is eating. He’s also aware of when he can’t have the same thing as everyone else.
Over the weekend we went trick-or-treating at our local zoo. As I was picking through the candy, he wanted to try it all. Not because he knows what it tastes like as candy is something he’s not been exposed to aside from the occasional Dum-Dum sucker that he gets after a visit to the chiropractor’s office. But candy is colorful and fun. Of course he wants to check it out!

Summer is a hard time for both managing healthy snacks and not breaking the bank. Whether you’re at the pool and the concession stands are calling or you’re touring the local zoo where the popcorn and candy cart is situated just as you walk from the tiger exhibit towards the giraffes, there are so many places you can get off track in your family’s mealtime routine.
Rather than giving in (though I’ll admit I enjoy giving in once in a while when appropriate), try to plan ahead and be prepared for those impulse buys when they pop up faster than kettle corn at the farmers market.
