It is always worrying how many sweets or chocolate your children consume, especially after events like Halloween, Christmas or even birthday parties! Sweets and chocolate are often the first tool to quieten the children down – they can’t scream and shout if they are eating! It will give you some respite but there is the risk of dental decay. Instead of giving them sweet/chocolate treats, why not replace it with low sugar or sugar free options. Or keep it to a minimum to prevent tooth decay. I only allow them to have a small piece of chocolate each day after school.
