The season is filled with heart-stopping horror movies and haunted houses, creative costumes, and treats galore. Even for those of us who are too old to go trick-or-treating, it’s hard to avoid Halloween candy. But, don’t fear – with time and a little pre-planning, type 1 diabetes won’t take away the fun from Halloween!
JDRF has put together a few helpful resources to help navigate this tricky holiday. The links below offers a printable one sheet resource for carb counts of common Halloween candies, as well as a reference on alcohol consumption to help make your celebrations a little easier and safer.
