Halloween Fairy to limit the amount of sugar consumed. I've heard some parents say their dentist says it's better to let the kids eat all their Halloween candy till it's gone because it's better for their teeth to have a couple of days with loads of sugar then sugary candy everyday for a month or more. I think my mom, with 5 kids didn't want to have to bother with policing the candy and keeping track of it so we just kept it in our room and did what we wanted. (Maybe she figured we'd earned it after trekking around in the cold and snow in Northern Canada all night) But I'm wondering, what do you do with Halloween candy?
My daughter had a couple pieces last night, but I cut it off after only a few because it was already really passed her bedtime when we were finished with our Halloween festivities and I wanted to her be able to sleep, and not high on sugar all night....even though that's what Halloween's about...but she's 3.5.....she doesn't know other kids get to eat it all at once till they puke. I might do the Halloween Fairy thing still, or just give her a few everyday, or just give her the bucket to go through as she pleases...but I'm leaning against the last option.
The sad part for me this year is I don't get to rumage through her bucket and steal the peanut butter cups or snickers! (milk chocolate....can't have it! BOOO!)
Well, I hope you all had a Happy, Fun & Safe Halloween!
