In a recent study by the American Dental Association, it was found that kids recognize that they eat too much candy on Halloween. The research showed that 94% of kids participate in Halloween, and 65% of those think Halloween is the best holidy of the year. It also reported that 2/3 of kids questioned agreed that they eat too much candy on and around Halloween. In order from most favorite to least favorite, kids said their top Halloween acitivites are trick or treating, dressing up in a costume, and getting lots of candy. This study also found that kids would still like Halloween if it was less about candy and more about other types of fun. To read more about this, click here.
