CANDY FOR CASH! Halloween Candy Buy Back.
What can parents do to help keep their kids’ teeth healthy without spoiling Halloween fun?
Buy Halloween candy as close to the 31st as possible so there’ll be less time for temptation and consider buying stickers or other non-candy treats for the trick-or-treaters.
- Eat a good meal before trick-or-treating so they’ll eat less candy.
- Brush teeth before and after eating candy. Brushing before reduces the amount of plaque that uses the sugar to produce acid (that causes tooth decay). Brushing after gets rid of the sugar on the teeth from the candy.
- When you’re going through your child’s trick or treat bag, throw out candy like caramel or taffy and hard candies. Your goal is to have candies that can be consumed quickly and won’t damage braces, sealants, or fillings.
- Decide on how much candy will be eaten and for how long. You can limit it to a couple/few pieces a day (with a meal or snack) and get rid of the remaining candy after a week or so. Or allow your child to eat a set amount (as determined by the parent) in one go and then get rid of it.
