Halloween can be a difficult time for patients with IBD!
A neighborhood or friend’s party filled with sugary treats can be a nightmare for you as a patient or as a parent. Here are some tips to help you get through it….
~ Trade the candy collected for a game, movie, an experience or just plain CASH!
~ Many dentist will also pay cash by the pound of candy. Call around!
~ If you are getting together with friends, bring your own treats so you know what’s in the treat. This is specially important if you are following a restricted diet or are sensitive to any ingredients.
~ Feed the kids and yourself a good special dinner, so the stomachs are full and less tempted to eat all the candy insight.
Good Luck and Happy Halloween!
