8 Out Of 10 Kids Think Too Much Candy Is a Bad Thing – Say What?

With Halloween just hours away, the ADA and PopCap Games just released a survey of kids who are between 5 and 13 years old, about their feelings regarding Halloween.   Not surprising is that 94 percent of the kids in the U.S. go trick-or-treating, and two-thirds say it’s their favorite holiday of the year.  The most popular Halloween activities are in this order:  trick-or-treating, dressing up in a costume and getting lots of candy.   But wait – Nearly 8 out of 10 kids agree that too much candy is bad. Slightly more girls than boys believe it to be so, and two out of three admit they eat too much candy after Halloween.

One more thing the survey discovered is that 89 percent of the kids would still enjoy Halloween if it was more about fun stuff and less about candy.   93 percent actually said they would sooner accept a video game than candy.   Sounds like very wishful thinking.
