Yes, you can just throw them away. Your kids eat them "occasionally," so make the next few weeks one of the occasions when they don't. Besides, whether you eat them or throw them away, the kids still aren't getting them.
So... If you can't throw them away because you have to have them for the kids, then you can't eat them either. If they belong to the kids, they belong to the kids, and eating them would be literally taking candy from your babies! If you can eat any of them, then they're NOT for the kids and you're lying to yourself about why you have them in the house in the first place.
