Since it is quickly approaching Halloween, I thought I would share with the newbies the idea I got off of this forum for dealing with Halloween candy. My six year old (type 1) goes trick-or-treating with his big sister as usual. He can pick out a few pieces of candy to have on Halloween night - bolused for - of course. Then he TRADES IN his candy for a toy. We usually hit Toys R Us the following night and let him pick out a toy (within reason of course) and we take the candy. THis is a hit with him - and he doesn't miss the candy at all. I usually send it to dad's work and get it out of the house. I think he is going to be a SWAT TEAM guy this year. Got to get the costume!
