Candy crackdown

By Corinne Hautala. CREATED Oct 31, 2013

When your kids come home with their loot of Halloween candy will you crackdown on how much they can eat? 

About three-fourths of parents will be controlling the consumption of their children’s Halloween candy, according to a 2013 consumer survey.

Is that the right move, though?

Sure, adults know better what is good for kids, but some criticize the candy rationing method.  Some parents believe if a child is deprived of the opportunity to see himself as responsible, even with Halloween candy, they’ll have tougher time facing choices later in life.
