Halloween Gets a Let’s Go! Makeover – “Health-O-Ween”

We’re constantly inspired by our partners’ creativity and dedication to healthy eating and active living. While we’ve been busy analyzing data and planning for 2015, partners like Southern Maine Health Care are developing amazing resources for the community.

The attached Guide to a Healthy Halloween provides tips for an energized All Hallows’ Eve. The hospital provided this resource to pediatric practices and partnered with Let’s Go! York County to increase distribution. The York County Let’s Go! Coordinators, Reegan and Van, are sharing this great advice with their local childcare centers, schools and out-of-school programs.DSC_0993

Our favorite piece of advice… “Eat a well-balanced dinner before heading out, this will prevent eating candy while you’re trick-or-treating.” Remember 5-2-1-0 and make sure your family gets lots of veggies at dinner tonight, they’ll keep you feeling full while you’re running door to door.

Let’s Go! encourages you to make this day more about family fun and less about the sugar high.

Happy Health-O-Ween everyone.
