Instead of passing out hard, sticky, unhealthy Halloween candy, why not give the little trick-or-treaters teeth-healthy treats that are also delicious? Well, we encourage you reward the ghouls and witches that visit your doorstep with teeth-healthy Halloween treats to give them a better chance at scaring away tooth decay!
We understand that it may be tough to find treats that are delicious as well as healthy, so we are happy to give you suggestions, and those suggestions include:
• Dark chocolate
• Sugar-free candy
• Sugar-free gum
• Sugar-free lollipops
• Granola bars
• Breakfast bars
You can also give away other treats and prizes, like toothbrushes, bottled water, puzzles, and small games. These things will entertain and hydrate the children as well as help them clean their smiles when they finish eating all of the Halloween candy.
No matter which treats or prizes you decide to give, it is very important that you do not hand out sticky, hard, or sour candies. These treats will cling to the children’s teeth and will produce acid in their mouths, which will eventually lead to tooth decay. So, make sure you pass out teeth-healthy treats that will reward the children as well as help them maintain a strong and healthy smile this Halloween.
