    Halloween is only one of the many holidays where finding a healthy balance between sweets and nutrition will be challenging. However it is an often overlooked opportunity to reinforce a varied diet that increases the intake of "good" foods and moderates the intake of "bad" foods. Each of the recipes listed above may not be low-calorie, but they do contain natural sugars (with the exception of the Dates stuffed with Caramelized Walnuts) and nutrients that would otherwise not be present in something like a candy bar.
