Candy Control: Make a Plan for Halloween

8 of 9

Have an All-You-Can-Eat Policy ... for One Night Only

Sometimes, a free-for-all is the best policy to nip sweet temptation in the bud. Allow your kid to have one piece of candy Halloween night, and the next day, give her carte blanche to eat her fill of chocolate, gummies and other sweets during dinner. The catch? Everything she doesn’t eat will get tossed. That way, your child will feel content with her candy intake, and you won’t have to worry about the surviving stash.
