Remember folks, Eat by Design is 80% of the time or better so it’s ok to have a little treat today, (moderation, moderation, moderation!)
However, if you’re looking to stick to your plan you could always candy some bacon. Yum-yum!
If you’re a little worried about this situation for your kids:
here are a list of places where you can donate some of that candy to help others.
In London, Ontario:
London Food Bank
Ronald McDonald House of Southwestern Ontario
Cash for Candy
Canada Red Cross
Ronald McDonald House
For our American Friends:
Halloween Candy Buy Back
Check with your local dentist. For example, Forest Hill Orthodontics in Toronto, Ontario posted this to their Facebook page:
“Halloween is around the corner! Be sure to save your candy for our annual Swap Your Sweets contest. Donate your Halloween candy to a good cause by dropping it off at our office. Forest Hill Orthodontics will donate $1.00 per each pound of candy to a jackpot. The school that brings in the most candy wins the entire jackpot up to a maximum of $1,000! You too will receive a reward of 10 Bruno Bucks for every pound that you donate. Candy will be donated to a third world country. Candy drop off is between November 1st and 22nd.”
I’d like to think that if I had kids, I’d let them have some candy and then donate some to people less fortunate than themselves. What will you be doing with your leftover candy?
