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.

 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!

I'm enjoying the beautiful lovely sunny BC weather, some alone time and catching up on all my stuff. I feel blessed to afford a vacation and time away. It is wonderful to sleep in, snuggle with Abigail and see her delight in the countryside.

 I have been reflecting a lot on my weight, stress, and my work. The time away has made me realize, I need to slow down, cleanse and focus more on me. So, you will see less of me at the store and hopefully less of me physically. I am reducing my hours to only Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. I want to focus more on being a mommy, my health and my spirituality. Sundays and Thursdays I will offer more classes and Tuesday will be more client time.
