Earlier today my son told me he did not want to be Michael Jackson for Halloween. He now wants to be Dracula. Is it really that time of year? Since he is thinking of costumes I guess I need to be thinking about protecting his teeth and giving out the best candy to trick or treaters.
Halloween is a fun and exciting time for kids, but a destructible and toxic time for their teeth. As a parent, how do you stop your child from partaking in the joy that is trick-or-treating? With the help of the 11th
annual Halloween Candy Buy Back
program, in which local dentists “buy” back kids’ Halloween candy in exchange for product packages, cash, or other incentives, Halloween can be enjoyable for kids, parents, and even US troops overseas! This year, the program wants to promote a positive dental health message and hope to introduce kids to the great tasting, natural sweetener, xylitol. While most children enjoy the taste of regular sugar candy, it is neither good for the child’s oral health or body. Their product packages will be full of goodies including xylitol candy provided by Xlear Inc. which tastes great and is actually beneficial
to your child’s health!
Founded in 2005 by Dr. Chris Kammer, the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program began as a way to keep excess Halloween candy “off the streets” and help keep kids’ mouths healthier. This year, the program is moving to be a force for good by teaming up with Xlear Inc., the leading manufacturers of xylitol products, and Tess Oral Health, makers of dental, professional, and oral hygiene products. Together they will partner with dental offices nationwide to reach the goal of sending 100,000 toothbrushes overseas as well collect children’s Halloween candy to give the soldiers a holiday away from home. This simple act of kindness enables children to exchange their Halloween candy and receive a token in return while showing love and support to our men and women fighting for our country every day.
The idea of participating in the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program and handing out a healthy candy option is perfect for me.
SparX Halloween Candy from Xlear, Inc. candy come in three great flavors: Natural Fruit, Natural Berry, and Natural Citrus. These naturally-flavored candy “dots” are loved by kids and parents alike, and are available for a limited time at xlear.com for $4.32
