The Seven Worst Halloween Candies for Kids

 "Women's Day" magazine put together a list of the most unhealthy Halloween candies for kids.  All of them are either high in calories, bad for their teeth, or BOTH. 

#1.)  Snickers.  The main reason they're bad is the caramel, which gets stuck in their teeth and causes cavities.  That's one reason 3 Musketeers are a better choice.  Plus, they have fewer calories.   

#2.)  Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins.  One of them has as many calories as two normal Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  One regular cup has 88 calories.  One Peanut Butter Pumpkin has 180.

#3.)  Candy Corn.  It's worse than most other types of candy, because it's nothing but sugar, artificial coloring, and artificial flavors. 

#4.)  Tootsie Pops.  Actually, any kind of lollipop is bad for your kid's teeth, simply because they take so long to eat.  Most types of candy only stay in your mouth for a few seconds.  But lollipops can take five or ten minutes to finish. 

#5.)  Starburst.  Each piece is about 15 calories, which isn't that bad.  But they're loaded with fat and sugar.  In fact, ten Starbursts have about the same amount of sugar as five-and-a-half SUGAR PACKETS. 

#6.)  Sour Patch Kids.  Again, they stick to your teeth and cause cavities.  But they also have high levels of acid in them, which breaks down your enamel and causes even more cavities.

#7.)  Fun Dip.  If you don't remember, it's basically a hard white stick of sugar that you dip into more sugar.  So it's pretty obvious why it's bad for you.  One serving has 50 calories, and sometimes one package has three servings in it.
