    I can't encourage you enough to do things as you would in years past. It's a little bit more stressful, but it sounds like you've researched it enough. Granted, kids have their favorite candy, but you'll probably have something that he/she might want that you don't have a clue for the carbs. The internet is great for finding the carbs that you need- and don't forget about good ol' CWD, someone here might know the answer :cwds:. Just explain to your child that he/she can have it, just explain to them you need a little bit of time to find the carbs. If all else fails just guess. We guess often- it happens, and we get better at it the more we do it.
    With all the walking we do at Halloween Abby gets at least two free treats during the evening because she goes low. Not only does she go low from the activity, she also goes low from excitement when she's happy.
    Try to enjoy the night!
