Kids With Diabetes Can Have a Happy Halloween

Halloween is synonymous with costumes, haunted houses, trick-or-treating — and candy. And while no parent wants their kids to overindulge in the sugary stuff, those of children with diabetes, especially kids newly diagnosed, may be especially concerned.
