Candy Buy Back

On Monday November 1st 2010, Dr. Thom Evans, Dr. Kindal Robertson and the Staff of the Evans Centre for Dental Health and Wellness, will be hosting their 3rd Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back.

Last year's event saw more than 150 kids from the community and local schools bring in a whopping 900 pound mountain of Halloween Candy during the 3 hour event.

Again this year, The Evans Centre will pay your ghouls and goblins a loonie and an entry for an Ipod Nano for every pound of candy they bring in, plus each Trick-or-Treater will receive a Free Firefly LED Toothbrush.

The annual consumption of sugar has accelerated for the past century to a yearly 44.2 kg per capita in Canada in 2005. More alarming is the increased consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup which we believe is much more harmful to health and is the sweetener used in nearly all Halloween Candy.

At a time when our community is still concerned about strengthening their immune responses to  health threats as H1N1 and the flu, eliminating 900 lbs of candy from the diets of our children is the right thing to do.

If the collected candy is unhealthy for our clients and families, it can not be good for others. So we destroy the candy instead of pass the problem onto other kids. There are alternatives to excessive amounts of candy.

 The Candy Buy Back is an ideal way to wrap up Halloween without saturating in excessive sugar for days. Start a healthy tradition this Halloween. See you there!

Praise. Did you know that praising people can have a positive healing effect on you? When you see someone do something exceptional, praise them. Praising can put us in a good mood, make other people feel value and worth all the while having healing effects on you.

Speaking of praise, I want to thank Lund's Organic for their hard work in providing me the best ever kale for my kale chips this fall. If you have not tried Lund's Organic Kale, I recommend you run and grab all that they have, uh, that is if I haven't bought it all by Friday morning!
