Halloween 2020 may look different, but one thing is sure to remain the same: candy is still king!
So many kids and adults look forward to this one evening of dressing up and eating as much candy as they want. But Halloween can be scary in more than the obvious way for families of those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Children and adults alike should make sure they are enjoying candy, goodies and treats sensibly, and being mindful of the alcoholic drinks they consume as a part of the revelry.
But don’t be scared, JDRF has you covered! We’ve created an easy-to-use Halloween Guide that has tips and suggestions to help you prepare for a fun and safe holiday. Be sure to also check out our expanded list of carbohydrate counts for popular Halloween candies.
We know what you’re thinking: Halloween is not just for kids, so if you’re going to be enjoying adult beverages, be sure to check out our guide to drinking safely with T1D.
Remember to follow all local and federal guidelines when it comes to safely celebrating Halloween during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you stay healthy, have fun and enjoy spooky season!
