With another Halloween come and gone, your kiddos will be munching on candy for weeks, and hopefully they can make their goodies last that long. While too much candy in one sitting can hurt their bellies and make them feel ill, there are even worse consequences that can outlast a belly ache. Candy is full of sugar, and sugar can cause huge problems for your children’s teeth.
No candy is good for your teeth, but there are some that will cause less harm than others and some you should try avoiding all together. Taking away your kid’s Halloween candy may be hard, especially if you picture the scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when Willy Wonka has a flashback to his childhood, when his father took all of his Halloween candy and told him how it would destroy his teeth. Taking your kid’s candy most likely won’t turn into them creating an entire factory built around candy and having terrible flashbacks of their childhood, but better not to take chances
