A few tricks for a better-for-you holiday:

  • Give stickers, temporary tattoos, crazy pencils and erasers or other non-candy treats.
  • Follow one California community’s lead and distribute gently used books instead of candy (details: BooksforTreats.org).
  • Donate a portion of your child’s stash to dentists who will send the candy to troops overseas. For a list of participating dentists, go to www.thesmileexperts.com/halloween.
