What to do with all the Halloween candy
Updated: 11/1/2012 5:43:56 PM

What to do with all the halloween candy Now that Halloween is over, many parents may be concerned about their children's dental health following the candy binge that they may have indulged in. While it's inevitable that children have already eaten some of their sugary snacks, that doesn't mean they have to eat all their remaining candy. There are alternatives to finishing trick-or-treat bags.

For example, the Edmonds Beacon, a Washington state news source, reported that local dentists will give children $2 for every pound of candy they bring to the office. All of the candy received will be sent overseas to U.S. soldiers who may not encounter these treats often while they are on duty. In this scenario, everyone wins. The children get money while giving up candy for a good cause.

Boston Magazine has another fun recommendation for what to do with an excess of Halloween candy. The news source suggested that parents create a "donation bag" and tell their children to put a certain percentage of their candy in it. Then, they can decide together as a family where they should donate the candy, which gives children some of the power.
