Don’t Eat All That Candy!!

Trick or Treat for America's Toothfairy

How much candy did your children get last night?!!
How much did they eat?!!
Let’s have a “teaching moment” together!!
If your children were as fortunate as mine was last night, you have a lot of candy at your house. You are, most likely, monitoring the candy intake and ensuring that your children are not overeating and taking care of their health!!

What did your children learn last night?!!

My 3 year old learned about “Trick or Treat”, “Please”, and “Thank You” and he did a great job!! He was the “Black Batman” (don’t ask me why we had to specify that it was black Batman..I have no idea) and he was just overjoyed by everyone being so nice and giving him so much!!

On the way home, he told us that he was the Best Winner Ever!! :)

Let’s take that generosity one step forward with America’s Toothfairy Halloween!!

Did you know: 

  • Severe tooth decay is the #1 chronic childhood disease in the United States,
    and it’s 100% preventable.
