After trick-or-treating is over and there are piles of candy all over the house, the kids are going to want to eat it all at once. Instead of giving in to all the bribes and nagging, bake some healthy but sweet treats for your family. This way you can bargain with the kids. They can have a small piece of candy and a healthy sweet treat to satisfy their sweet tooth without giving them a sugar high or mouth full of cavities.
You may be wondering what to do with all the extra candy? If the kids have limited candy consumption, there is bound to be extra candy sitting around. No worries! There is an amazing program called the Halloween candy buy back for Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude is collecting uneaten Halloween candy and sending it to troops overseas.
This is a great lesson for your kids. Teach them to limit their candy consumption and give back all at the same time! Candy buy backs in the Madison area include:
• Odana Hills Dental on Saturday, November 5 from 9am to noon. Location: 5510 Medical Circle, Madison WI.
• Lifetime Family Dentistry. Location: 8313 Greenway Blvd, Middleton WI.
• Madison No Fear Dentistry. Location: 344 S Yellowstone Drive, Madison WI.
