Happy Halloween - Handy Candy Calorie Counter

Here's a handy candy calorie counter so you can monitor and meausre how much candy is the right amount for your kids.

This chart is from our friends at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (it's from 1997 but I'm sure its still pretty accurate).

If you want a more current listing of calories please go to Calorie King.

A good Halloween strategy that works in my house is to let your kid pick a set number of pieces that he can eat (spread out over the next few days) and then bring the rest to work with you and let your co-workers go nuts. You'll get brownie points for bringing treats in for your co-workers and you'll save your family lots of extra calories.
