What is your policy on giving kids candy? What age do you think it is appropriate?
And.. be honest.. do you eat your kids Halloween candy?:)
It is easier to measure this amount of candy by the pound than by the piece. And yes there are 2 containers of cupcakes and a cake in there.
We're lucky - our boys aren't candy crazy. If I gave it to them - they wouldn't sit down and eat the whole lot at once (well maybe little man). Even so, we monitor how much they have and when. One piece after lunch, one later on - gum whenever as long as they throw it in the trash afterwards.
I'm not picky about what they eat - except for little man. He can't have lollipops yet because I'm afraid he'll try to bite them and then choke - the same goes for other hard candy. After than he's good to go - in moderation.
Am I crazy? Maybe - but isn't that what halloween is about?
