Halloween is around the corner! ADT Dental would like to share a few recommendations for a healthy & fun Trick or Treat Day.
Halloween is a teaching moment for healthy eating. Yes, candy is delicious and yummy, so enjoy. But remind your children the importance of moderation and self-control, important lessons for all of life.
Sour candy is much worse than candy that is just sweet. Why? Sour candy is acidic accelerating tooth damage.
Candy that melts in your mouth is better than hard and sticky candy. That makes chocolate a better choice than Jolly Ranchers or Gummy Bears.
Sugarless gum with Xylitol is a great choice. Xylitol cleanses and re-mineralizes teeth.
Be sure to limit your kids’ intake of candy. They may not notice if you deplete their stash more quickly by freezing or even throwing it away a handful at a time.
