An alternative idea to Halloween candy for kids is the Switch Witch

The Switch Witch
What a great idea to take Halloween candy and switch it for awesome toys!

Halloween is a time for children to dress up in costumes, get lots of candy, and show off their hard earned sweet and sour candy varieties to friends and family. Unfortunately, the sugar can cause dental problems like cavities but many parents are hesitant to take a child’s candy away because they want the children to be happy.

The American Dental Association recommends limiting trick-or-treaters to no more than two pieces of candy per child.
