Have you noticed the amount of candy that Trick or Treaters end the night with these days? We’re talking grocery bags full of candy - even reaching a weight that can’t be carried by some of the tiniest ghosts and goblins! Zing Bars Minis are the perfect healthy halloween treats to add to the mix.
Side Effects of Too Much Sugar
Halloween is tricky. The neighborhood brood wants all the sweet treats, but their parents prefer healthier options (or to skip the candy all together...not happening). Through the years, parents have become more aware and educated about the harmful effects of sugars, artificial sweeteners, food additives and food dyes. Halloween night can often end with a real life howling werewolf situation, some googly-eyed monster tricks or a zombified princess. On a more serious note, excessive and long-term consumption of sugars can lead to tooth decay, diabetes, obesity, insomnia and even anxiety and depression. "The effects of added sugar intake — higher blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, diabetes, and fatty liver disease — are all linked to an increased risk for heart attack and stroke," says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
