As a parent, most of us see our kids come home with a bag full of candy and cringe at the implications of tooth decay, hyperactivity, and just plain bad eating habits. Sure, they're kids but how much candy do they really need? So, if you're out trick-or-treating this year and the kids come back with more than they can possibly eat, there are options! A good option is to donate the candy!
Silicon Valley Dentists Unite on Halloween!
One of the best ways to get rid of the candy is to take it to your local dentist who participates in the Halloween Cand Buyback. This program has dentists who "buy back" the candy and then donate it to the troops overseas. With so many soldiers in need of a little taste of home, this is a great opportunity to cut back on the sweets for kids while supporting the troops! There is another program called Operation Shoebox that also takes candy donations for the troops.
Take It To The Office
I've always taken candy to the office to give to colleagues. Many people do this as well but it works out nicely in offices where there are a lot of meetings and people are looking for snacks. I had one year where I brought a whole bowl of candy and it took 3 days to disappear (almost entirely). Sure, there are some who would rather not have the extra calories at work most folks will appreciate the extra sweets.
