It’s no secret that I love Halloween and all the yummy treats it brings. Part of the fun of this frightful night has always been revelling in how much candy has been collected.
However, I have to be mindful of the fact that Jedi can’t have all the chocolate in the world lest his blood sugar skyrocket off the charts. And worrying about his diabetes is not the right way to spend a #SweetHalloween. I do want him to feel like a normal child on this and every day, however, so a few pieces here and there. None of the weird stuff, please.
Then there’s the matter of cavities, which are really scary.
With all that sugar consumption, it’s important to be a fanatic with tooth brushing. Those teeth need to keep in healthy shape so they can munch on even more candy and sweets later. And that’s why you need a tough oral hygiene team to spook those cavities away, which is what you get with Crest and Oral-B. Extra savings on both, that’s really sweet!
I’m not saying I’m going to keep all the candy away, but I know there has to be limitations. And then, while my kids are tucked into bed, safely sleeping off all that fright-night sugar, that’s when I get to eat the rest. Really, when you think about it, I’m doing my kids a favor. Us moms, we have to think about our children’s health first.
