With Halloween fast approaching it’s hard not to cringe at just how much candy is coming your kids’ way. And with the December holidays after that, it’s pretty much safe to say that we will be booking several dentist appointments in the coming months.

We love to let our kids splurge once in a while, but let’s face it, we know how harmful sugar can be. So instead of fighting a battle we will inevitably lose, why not switch out the candy, snacks and ice cream for something a bit healthier? The best part? Your kids won’t even be the wiser.
