Halloween candy is a tradition that can go way out of hand. I do provide candy for the trick oir treaters BUT I always make sure to buy candy that I really don't like. That way it can be in my house the week before Halloween and I am not tempted in the slightest to have any.

If you'd rather not have a ton of candy around your house after Halloween, let your child pick out 3 or 4 of their favorite pieces to keep and then tell them to put the rest outside their door when they go to sleep and the switch witch will come get the candy and bring them a present that they have been asking for instead!
When giving out Halloween candy, I put a self adhesive name and address label on the candy or goodies I give out, that way a parent knows where the candy came from and that the candy is safe because, I have put my personal label on the candy.
