Trick or Treat: Limiting Candy Consumption
Halloween can be so much fun for kids, but dealing with the aftermath can be a headache. Kecia wants to know how you handle the Halloween sugar overload?
I would love advice and suggestions regarding Halloween candy. My son is three years old and we love the idea of dressing up and trick-or-treating. I’m actually fine with my son having a piece of candy (or two). I don’t want a bucket full of candy sitting around our house for weeks. I don’t want him eating a piece (or two) of candy day after day. Last year, I explained that when Halloween is over his candy goes away. It worked well, but he was only 2 ½. What do you do? Is there actually a place that we can bring his candy (college campus, meals-on-wheels, etc.)? Please share your suggestions.
