Halloween as we know it today is a day for children to collect monstrous bags of candy, but it hasn't always been that way. In the 1800's children in Scotland got fruit! What a healthy treat to hand out. Many countries would also hand out coins, a tradition in which 13% of households continue today.
While a few sweet treats are okay, too much sugar might get your child bad marks at his or her next dental visit.
So buck the trend! Hand out stickers, spider rings, or even Halloween pencils and erasers. You might keep 1 child from developing a painful cavity!
