A Sugary Sweet Success Story {Video}

With Halloween approaching at the end of the week, a big question on many parent’s minds is sure to be, “how much is too much?” This question, of course, is in reference to finding that perfect amount of sugar-laden candy that is acceptable to eat once those piles upon piles magically appear after a long night of trick-or-treating. Too little takes away the fun. But too much is downright spooky!

Flatout co-founder Stacey Marsh has two daughters of her own. She shares her thoughts on the house candy drawer in today’s video. We hope you find her tips and advice informative and, more importantly, timely as you prepare for the hyperactive week ahead!

We’d love to hear your fresh perspective!

  • Do you have a candy drawer at home? What are your rules for how your kids enjoy sweets?

Have a spooky Monday!

    I actually think this is an EXCELLENT IDEA!

    We all TRY, as hard as we may, to keep the candy and junk away from our kiddos, but what it really does it make them want it that much more when they are out and about out from under our thumbs! I think this is perfect.

    I used to have a snack drawer for my daugther, when it was just her, and she did amazingly well with it like your kiddos. Now, I have two small boys, and they don’t yet have that self control. Once they get a bit older, I’m definitely going to try this! 🙂

    (Right now, they eat anything and everything in site, as soon as we get it!

    (Are those Thin Mints? We sold out of those a LONG time ago – the only ones I wish we still had… ok, maybe not, or I’d eat them all!)

    Thanks for sharing, Stacey! 🙂

    Ahh I could not have that drawer in my house Stacey!

    When we go out the kids can get what they want…soda, dessert, candy etc. but it is not a regular in the house. We do have healthier options for sweets available all the time and the kids enjoy them more. They will get soda when we eat out but as far as dessert they usually opt to not have it and have something we have at home.

    I do think it is great if you can keep it, just not an option here in this house…never has been.
