Re-posting: Halloween Carb Counts!

I am thankful to the American Diabetes Association for publishing information like this! Help your child (or yourself- I am a Jr. Mint/York Peppermint Patty junkie). Every kid can enjoy the treats of Halloween without disastrous repercussions if carb counts are known. Take a minute and look through this list. Have a great October!
