The fall season isn't only flu season. It's also a season for overindulgence. From Thanksgiving through Halloween and onto Christmas, people tend to overindulge on sweet desserts more often than not. I know we are guilty of this ourselves in our house!

We all enjoy a good treat in our house but we try not to over do it and make treats a regular thing. If the kids want a snack, they ask. That way we know what they are eating (or not eating) most of the time. 

Not only that but people can become less active during the colder months with the outdoors not being as activity friendly once the snow falls if you are like me and don't like skiing or skating. On top of the sweetness, you're asking for trouble. 

As parents we are always trying to balance health and keeping fit all year round, especially in the cooler months. Keeping active when the weather is chillier is as easy as dressing for it and going outside. Going for walks or just playing in the leaves is something better than nothing.

November is World Diabetes Month with November 17th being World Diabetes Day

As scary as it is to say, Diabetes runs in my family and my family's health is important to me. I know how difficult it can be to reduce sugar intake in your diet but we need to make sure our kids are happy and that includes their parents being healthy too. 

Blood sugar is important. Talk to your doctor about having your blood sugar tested and make some serious changes to your diet and your life. Some things to help reduce sugar in your life is looking for sugar free and other healthier alternatives to foods you love. Check labels carefully and shope wisely.
