Drs.Therrien and Klimis-Zacas offer nutritional advice in a story today about Halloween candy. Both Klimis-Zacas and Therrien said that it is not what you eat but the amount and how often that counts. Candy isn’t the enemy, and nutritionists are trying to get away from the concept of good food and bad food — all food can be enjoyed occasionally.
“If you crave sweet things, things like grapes, pears, apples and dry fruit are very good for you and provide nutrients to your body,” said Klimis-Zacas.
As a mother of two, Therrien provided some parental and nutritional advice for surviving Halloween without a bellyache.
