Do Kids Still Want Candy On Halloween?
Encouraging healthy choicesAs the frenzy of Halloween dies down and candy remains on the shelf, consider using the candy for means other than consumption. Ask children if they would like to donate the candy to nearby orphanages or children shelters to kids who didn’t have a chance to trick or treat. Consider making an art project or create a learning opportunity out of the candy instead. Separate favorite candies from the rest and supplement favorite candies with healthy snacks. Limit the amount of candy per day and store it in a parents-only place.
