Does Halloween help contribute to the childhood obesity epidemic? If so, what should be done?

No - it's one night - and actually it is a pretty active holiday

I would think Halloween would have a negligible impact compared to everything else all year long.

In addition to Early's mentioning of McDs, the lack of activities for youth that really are enjoyable truly is compounding the problem. Additionally, when I was growing up there was a lot of undeveloped land around where we'd spend hours, days there.

That and those damn single, assault rifle owning mothers that are warping our kid's minds.

Very little compared to everyday eating of meals way too high in sugar, starches & fat. A ritual candy splurge perpetuates the thinking that pigging out on candy is a good thing, but if that were the only overindulgence, it wouldn't be an issue.

It's the little things that make a big difference.

No, a couple of days worth of candy isn't the problem. The problem is the other 360 days a year when the kids are eating at mcDonalds and Burger King every night.

Parents need to stop letting their fat ass kids eat so much candy

There is never a reason to strike a child! But as a community, we should all help guide our children down the right path.
