Get Rid of the Temptation in Your House and Make Everyone Smile!
Cavities, or dental caries, is the most prevalent childhood disease today. Each year across the world, kids consume 2% more sugar than the year before – that's 50 million tons of sugar annually! Sugar also contributes to hyperactivity and some candies can harm teeth or braces.
But every kid loves Halloween! So do adults. As responsible dentists, community members, and US citizens, Halloween Candy Buy Back dentists have found a way to keep the fun, while helping kids and our overseas troops.
How does the program work?
* Participating dentists buy back kids' Halloween candy
* The candy will be shipped to US soldiers serving overseas
We did this...we had 5 lbs of candy (after eating a few pieces) that we were able to donate to the troops. What do two kids need 5 lbs of candy for??? Thank god that it's out of my house, otherwise I would have put on lots-o-pounds from that 5 lbs of candy!! Anything to keep the candy off my hips and thighs!!!
