With attempts to reduce our allergies, ferment foods and kefir, eat natural, traditional foods, take supplements, etc., I'm looking for Halloweeen solutions this year.
My eldest wants to try trick or treating this year (in the past we went to a halloween carnaval). Trading his treats for organic sugar ones doesn't seem like a good option to me. He still has such dark circles and puffy bags under his 8 year old eyes. Its disheartening with how much effort I have made towards making his gut better, and how all our efforts could be undone with a load of sugar.
At the same time, I've tried explaining to him about how the treats likely contain corn syrup, which is most likely genetically modified, and that a load of sugar will hurt his tummy, etc., etc. but he still wants to try it.
