Trick or Treat (and count those carbs!)

I live in one of those neighborhoods that's just perfect for Halloween. Loads of kids, easy to navigate sidewalks and neighbors who go all out decorating and treating.

This is when I usually start getting the questions, though. Will Benny trick or treat? (Yes). Is it okay to give him candy? (You betcha). Should we provide sugar-free versions of the stuff I'm giving to other kids? (NO!)

Benny was three years old for his first post-diabetes Halloween. That's when we told him this is the holiday when you run around the neighborhood, getting as much candy as you can possibly carry. Then you bring it home and trade it in for a new toy!

some places like dentist offices, let you donate your candy to the troops and in exchange i think you get something :slight_smile:
