If you’re tired of handing out smile-harming candy every Halloween, our dentist, Dr. Steven and Randy, has some recommendations for you. Fortunately, there are many things you can hand out that can make trick-or-treating a little healthier and just as exciting! Those things are:

-Glow sticks: These fun little sticks, bracelets, and necklaces can add a little color to a costume, help little ones who are afraid of the dark, and even help the parents keep track of their little witches and ghosts.

-Sugar-free gum. This treat can be fun and healthy for the kids because they can pop bubbles as they trick-or-treat, and they can rinse the bacteria away from their teeth and gums because chewing produces saliva flow!

-Halloween trinkets: These little treasures can add a little fun to the trick-or-treating journey. Halloween bouncy balls, temporary tattoos, stickers, and monster finger puppets can add some excitement to the night! You can find these little trinkets at the discount store.
