There's no shame in hoarding Fun Size Milk Duds long after the trick-or-treaters are gone. Lisa Young, an NYU nutritionist and author of The Portion Teller, offers these smart strategies for indulging:

* Bring only two types home. Studies show the more choices, the more calories you'll consume.

* Go for good-for-you foods covered in dark chocolate, like Christopher Norman's ginger "chips."

* The longer it takes to eat, the less you'll crave it later. Smart choice: See's creamy 80-calorie lollipops.

Happy Halloween!
