1

Avoid Caramel

 

 

Avoid candy with caramel.  It tends to cause the most cavities, because it sticks to your teeth.  But straight chocolate isn’t as bad, because it melts fast, and gets washed away by your saliva.

More Water

 

 

Make them drink more water.  They won’t want to eat as much candy if they have a glass before they go trick-or-treating.  But they might need to use the bathroom in the middle of it, so it’s your call.  They should definitely have a glass of water afterward though, because it helps wash away the sugar.  Obviously make them brush before bed too.  And Halloween is probably the most important day of the year to floss as well.

Candy AFTER Meal Only

 

 

Only give them candy after a meal.  Again, they won’t eat as much because they’ll already be full.  Plus, eating dinner will make them produce more saliva to wash away all the sugar they have for dessert.
