Some helpful tips for this fall season (Halloween!)
Fill up before trick-or-treating or trunk-or-treating!
Give your kiddo a healthy hearty snack or dinner before you head out of the house. Everyone will be less likely to snack along the way; this allows an adult to inspect treats before eating once all are back home.
Once home, choose wisely!
Separate chewy sticky and sour candies from melting chocolate candies.
Chocolate candies are best as they are cleaned off the teeth better and faster than others.
For 2-3 days eat the candy and then get rid of it.
Don’t stress !
A few days of eating a few more sweets should not cause long term damage. It is your day to day habits that matter most.
Brush and floss!
Brush and floss close to the time of exposure to sugary foods. Usually best with parent help.
