    Interesting. This is what we would have to do if we went trick or treating, because our son has so many food allergies. He is used to not being able to eat things and very rarely even asks for anything like cookies at a cafe or cake at a party, but somehow the idea of taking the trick or treat candy from him breaks my heart. One thing I have seen suggested is to go to some neighbors houses ahead of time and give them candy to give to him, so he'd get his favorites, but it seems like too much work right now. We just stuck to dressing up for halloween parties (he had 4!) and non food treats, plus allergy safe baking, and we'll deal with trick or treating another year. 🙂

    We do the same. We trade the candy for other treats. It helps cut down on the sugar high.

    We trade the candy for a small toy instead, this year we are taking the candy to one of the area dentists that participates in the candy drop off (sends the candy to soldiers overseas).

    We just went out and L and Daddy dressed up. The few houses on our street the people know and were kind enough to give her dried cranberries and crayons and a couple juice boxes. The other candy we gave to Daddy since he trick or treated too. She seemed to totally go for it and think it was fair. We'll see about next year!

    I let my children keep a few, and then we put the rest in the basket for the trick-o-treaters. Recycling! I also just read about Salt and Chocolate's neat idea where the Green Pumpkin fairy takes all the candy and leave a present behind.

    In our house, I'm the candy monster. So far, neither boy likes sweets. Both will bite but spit out chocolate. They eat fruit now, but when they first started solids, I had to hide the fruit in the veggies.We did get alot of raisins and fruit snacks this year, along with the choclate bars (that I split between myself and my office). Trends are starting to give out stickers and pencils and other non-food items.
