The end of the month has quickly arrived and Halloween is just two days away! We have been talking about it all month long, so it’s hard to believe it’s finally here! We know the kids are excited and yes, dressing up, walking around with friends and family, and getting candy is tons of fun! There’s just one little thing we want to mention and that is to make sure the kids avoid eating too much Halloween candy!
The OrganWise Guys encourage kids to select a couple pieces of Halloween candy, eat and enjoy and then hand over to their parents to manage. Parents can then oversee the candy intake! If it helps, make sure the kids are well-fed before going out for the night and try preparing a healthy treat, like these candy apple cookies for post trick or treating to distract from the candy overload!

All month long we have been discussing ways to be healthy and safe on Halloween. Today we are going to focus on the inevitable candy that is headed your way in a few short days. We always like to promote moderation and so a few pieces of candy to celebrate Halloween is okay. However, in saying that, we also like to recommend loading up even more on the healthy fruits and vegetables that are so good for your body. It also wont hurt to add in a little extra physical activity!
As we head into the holiday season, it is important to remember moderation and also to focus on making healthy choices, including encouraging kids to eat more fruits and veggies, most of the time!
For now, go ahead and download the coloring sheet helping kids to eat more fruits and veggies:
We’ve been discussing Halloween safety this month and we are back with yet another tip: Make sure and use the buddy system on Halloween night. This one is so important really all of the time! It’s always a good habit to go ahead and use the buddy system when out and about, especially at night. You can never be too careful!
It’s essential to teach kids about the necessity of the buddy system from a young age. Going out at night alone is simply never a safe or smart decision. Instilling this in kids minds early on will benefit them now and down the road. Hardy Heart is all about kids being safe on Halloween and every other day of the year, so start the conversation now!

It’s amazing how one small gesture can make a lasting impact on someone’s day. Whether you intend to or not, simply smiling at someone can potentially set or change a mood. You don’t know what everyone is facing each and every day and so sometimes smiling at a stranger or smiling to let someone you know that you understand can go a long way.
It’s important to teach kids to smile early on and introduce them to this concept of helping to make someone’s day just a little bit better with that small gesture. Peri Stolic realizes that simply changing her attitude and smiling throughout the day had such a positive impact on her overall mood and day.
