The biggest issue with Halloween candy other than the obvious…sugar… is the high amounts of high fructose corn syrup and GMO’s (genetically modified organisms). You should be aware of the dangers of sugar. You can bet that any product that contains high fructose corn syrup is a processed industrial food that is void of any nutrients. To increase health we want to seek whole, real, unprocessed foods that are rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.

In the States these products are available in Whole Foods stores. I haven’t checked in the Cheltenham store yet – but I’m sure they have these or similar alternatives.
