So when Xlear contacted me to let me know they had teamed up with some other great brands and Dentists to bring today's youth with the Halloween Candy Buyback Program, I found it to be a wonderful and creative idea. The Halloween Candy Buyback is a program where kids of all ages can trade in their candy for things like the chance to win cash and prizes. The candy is then sent over to Operation Gratitude which sends the candy to the U.S. Military.
Not only are you teaching your kids to steer away from sweets your teaching them the gift of giving. This is a great opportunity to start teaching the younger generations what it means to give back. Too many people in this world give something and want something in return. Lets teach the younger generations that it's ok to give especially to support your local community and/or our service men and women.
Last year I started to take notice of all the crap people are handing out to our kids when they trick or treat. I love when I stumble across a family which hands out something even just a little bit healthier. The thing is the kids don't always appreciate it! What if you can give them a candy though that tastes like candy but is actually GOOD for them?!
"SparX tiny bite-size fruit-flavored candies are a new sugar-free candy line sweetened exclusively with all-natural xylitol. One of the primary benefits of xylitol and SparX Candy is the effects it has on the bacteria that create cavities. When exposed to as little as 15 grams of xylitol a day, the bacteria in the mouth lose their ability to stick to teeth and form plaque."
With Dentists recommending SparX candy and Spry mints to families, this can be a great substitute or trade in for children participating in the Halloween Buy Back Program! Dane and Declan are hooked on these little candies! In fact, they've been asking if they can expect them this year for Halloween!
