Because the truth is, we all can’t be the house with the full sized candy bars, the raining cash, or the oh-so-cool DIY haunted house that took 152 weeks to plan. Sometimes, we have to be a little creative on Halloween when you forgot to buy the BOGO candy for 5. Weeks. In. A. Row. Life happens, but we can still be “cool on Halloween.”

Trick Kids into Healthy Treats? Yeah, Probably Not!
So you could offer your kids water on Halloween…or you could try this crazy prank from Crest! OMGoodness, have you seen this hilarious Crest Halloween video yet? Crest actually tricked kids into eating healthy Halloween treats – and the 100% honest responses are GOLD. From spitting out to the best faces EVER – you have to watch!
Would you do this to your trick-or-treat kids? I could NEVER!
The Scary Truth About Halloween & Your Teeth
What’s scarier than pranking kids with healthy treats? Knowing what candy actually does to their teeth! I know we always hear that candy is bad for our teeth, but this year I dug a little deeper into WHY.
Those simple sugars (especially the sticky and sour candies) are consumed by the bacteria in your mouth to create acid (this pediatric dentist article explains the process really well for kids – aka the bacteria eats the sugar and “poops” out acid). The acid is what ends up causing cavities and tooth decay. No Bueno. But parents, the kids aren’t the guilty parties on Halloween. Crest recently conducted a parent survey – and the results are spooky!
- 86% of parents admit to stealing their kids’ candy
- 73% of parents buy extra candy to binge on
- 44% of parents eat more candy than their kid
- 40% of parents enjoy Halloween more as an adult than as a kid
Scary stuff. But there is hope! 70% of the surveyed parents also have a stricter tooth brushing routine on Halloween night. In all seriousness, Crest has so many great products to make brushing teeth easier for the whole family. My kids love the flavor of Kid’s Crest Cavity Protection Sparkle Fun Toothpaste, since they both hate minty paste!
And the Crest Kid’s Anticavity Alcohol Free Rinse (the Strawberry Rush is approved by my kids!) are a great way to get into those cracks and crevices those toothbrushes may have missed! And hey, guilty parents? Don’t forget to set a good example too by brushing with some of my favorite Crest products. Crest Pro-Health line is amazing!
But what can we do between candy eating and tooth brushing? Naturally, our bodies want to fight the potential tooth harm by craving the opposite of acid. What neutralizes acid? Water! Ding, ding, ding!
By drinking more water on Halloween night, we can help rid our teeth of acid and kick start our good teeth hygiene routine. Between all of the walking, sweating and candy consumption that occurs on Halloween, those water cravings = one popular trick-or-treat stop!

While I certainly won’t prank kids with healthy Halloween treats, I certainly will offer them a FUN healthy alternative to sweets. Offering cold water bottles is actually what makes our house so popular on Halloween.
