No doubt children are already talking on the playground about how much “loot” they'll get this year. Unfortunately, chances are they'll get plenty of gooey chocolate bars, and hard-candy treats. You know… the kind that can really do a number on teeth.
To help keep cavities away and maintain your child's good dental health – along with everyone else's in the neighborhood – I recommend handing out some different items on Halloween night.
Consider these top candy alternatives that kids will love all the same.
- Sugar free gum
- Vampire teeth
- Halloween stickers
- Small cans of playdoh
- Temporary tattoos
- Small bottles of bubbles
t of these items are cheaper than candy, and can be purchased in bulk at a local $1 store or drug store.
Kids love this stuff and they won't cause decay!
If you do decide to indulge your sweet tooth this Halloween, always remember to brush and floss afterwards – and encourage your kids to do the same as well.
