Healthy Halloween Workplace

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

If your workplace is anything like KULR-8's chances are some Halloween treats already made their way to your office. While this is a time for fun and celebration nutritionists have some advice to make it a little healthier. Nutritionist Ginny Mermel says it's hard with candy on store shelves a month or more before Halloween to just buy candy for trick-or-treaters. She recommends picking one day to celebrate Halloween at work. If you get trick-or-treaters at the office she recommends handing out something other than candy, like pencils, toys or stickers. Mermel says 72% of the population in Yellowstone County is considered overweight or obese. "What we're trying to do is teach people ways they can still enjoy their favorite fun foods but head a little bit healthier life style and hopefully shed a few pounds while they're at it," says Mermel.
