Hello Lovelies! So with Halloween events ramping up over the weekend in anticipation of this past Monday night there have been a few news reports on Candy. And I was stunned that dentists were saying that it is better to eat (or let your kids eat) 5 pieces of candy all at once, rather than spacing them out.
This is because when you eat sugary candy and treats it lowers the pH level in you mouth which is the precursor to getting cavities and tooth decay (and no one want that!). So by eating candy over a longer period of time we are leaving out mouths more prone to this problem. But if we eat the candy over a shorter amount of time we can brush our teeth afterwards and restore the pH levels.
I just thought this was an interesting little piece seeing as I got some Halloween candy left over & brought to me by my neighbours' daughter who loves me ahaha.
Here is the full piece from CTV News if you are interested:
