Alternatives to Passing Out Sugar on Halloween

Holloween conceptAt Severance Dental, we love Halloween but find the damage caused by sugar to be just a little too spooky! Sugar is bad for a child’s overall health and is especially bad for his or her vulnerable tooth enamel. Sugar can eat away at this enamel, causing tooth decay, dental cavities, and even gum disease or tooth infections.

Non-Candy Halloween Alternatives

Luckily, there are some fun alternatives to sugary Halloween candy. Below are a few non-candy alternatives to pass out to the neighborhood children on Halloween:

  • Bubbles
  • Stickers
  • Glow sticks
  • Erasers or pencils
  • Bouncy balls
  • Clementine oranges
  • Skull or spider rings
  • Vampire teeth
  • Matchbox cars
  • Miniature slinkies
  • Mini Play-Doh tubs
  • Noise-makers or whistles

Halloween doesn’t have to be scary for your child’s oral health! The above non-candy alternatives are just as fun and cost-effective as sugary treats. The children who trick-or-treat at your home will love the creative alternatives and the parents will appreciate less candy in their child’s bag.

Here at Severance Dental, we want to wish you and your family a happy and safe Halloween! To make your family’s post-Halloween dental cleaning and exam, please contact our Severance, Colorado family dental office today!
