Loved this idea of the switch witch!! Now that Halloween is over and you are left with way more candy than any child or adult should ever consume what do you do with it?
Do you feel guilty for throwing away your kids halloween candy because they might get upset? Do you feel like they deserve it? Do you feel like YOU deserve it? Well, let's be honest. Do you really want your kids bouncing off the wall from a sugar high, refusing to go to bed at night or take a nap because they have had to many sweets? I know my kids tend to act out or become defiant when they eat to much sugar! So this Halloween I am not completely deprieving them of Halloween candy but it's definitely limited!!! They get 2 pieces of candy a day. The rest goes in a tupperware container in the top of the pantry. Then, after a week it goes in the garbage or is going to work with my husband. For most kids, when the candy is out of sight, it is also out of mind too!
Don't feel guilty or beat yourself up because you threw it away! You are only teaching your kids healthy habits and eating sweets in moderation is the way to go! If you look around kids everywhere are obese, it's becoming out of hand! Instead take matters into your own hands and teach your kids healthy habits!!!
I loved the idea of the switch witch! My kids are into cars, trucks and super hero's. So a brand new matchbox car, or a super hero figurine would do just fine for them!
I would love to know how you are handling the halloween candy overflow in your house???
Please post below!!!!
Even if you went totally over board, it's not the end of the world. You just decide that it is not going to define you and that you will start over today!!!!
Eat Clean & Train MEAN!!!!!
