How to Support Your Kid’s Health This Halloween

It’s that time of year — kids are excited to dress up like their favorite superhero, animal, or another character that they’re currently obsessed with to go out trick-or-treating for Halloween. And while it’s fun to dress up and collect lots of goodies from neighbors, it’s also a time for potential excess sugar intake that may have an effect on your kid’s wellness.

 

If you’re looking to continue supporting your child’s health this Halloween, here are some suggestions!

 

Halloween Candy Causing Tummy Aches?

We’ve probably all experienced this feeling at least once. You sit down with some of your favorite sweet treats and tell yourself just one more bite. Next thing you know, you’ve eaten more than your fill of sugar and feel the scary stomachache coming on.

 

Does your child experience this same feeling after their fill of Halloween candy? Their gut probably isn’t feeling happy!

 

A healthy gut is important for many of the body’s functions. Supporting your gut helps to support your immune system*, may help support your energy levels*, and promotes healthy bacterial balance*.

 

To support a healthy gut and digestion*, MaryRuth’s offers various probiotic supplements. Plus, our Liquid Probiotic is easy to dose for the entire family!

Sugar and Its Spooky Effects on Sleep

You know that “sugar high” your child has after eating some candy. They may have lots of energy, run around like crazy, and maybe even act out.

 

Though your kid may seem extra energetic for a while after all of their sugar ingestion, it doesn’t mean that they are going to have a better sleep that night. In fact, this sugar intake may have more of a negative impact on their sleep than you’d think.

 

Some studies have shown that eating excess sugar may lead to more restlessness and less quality sleep at night, meaning a lower quality of sleep. While there are ways to support sleep naturally, some supplements can help, too.

 

If your child isn’t sleeping well and can use some extra help sleeping, our Kids Plant-Based Melatonin Chewable Tablets promote relaxation and sleep*. With ingredients like Melatonin, Lemon Balm Extract (Melissa officinalis), Valerian Root Extract (Valeriana officinalis L.), and Chamomile Flower Extract (Matricaria chamomilla), these tablets may be useful for your child to take when experiencing occasional trouble sleeping.*

Supporting Kids’ Growing Bones

You’re probably seeing a lot more skeletons on display this time of year — which should be a good reminder to support your and your children’s bone health! Consuming essential nutrients is important for children’s growing bones.

 

What about supporting their bone health with delicious gummies they actually enjoy and are good for them?

 

Our Kids Multivitamin Gummies include a vegan form of D3, the same kind of vitamin D that your body makes naturally when exposed to sunlight! Vitamin D3 works to help build bones and teeth,* assisting the body in mineral absorption* — so it is essential for strong and healthy bones!*
