As Christmas approaches, Chocolate Advent Calendars are more tempting and inviting each year. Halloween too creates an atmosphere and opportunity where candies and other "naughty goodies" are thrust right before our eyes, and then comes Easter. Even I find it hard to decide which brand of Chocolate Easter Egg I should purchase, they all look incredibly good.
My thought is this;
How can we avoid or limit or minimize intake of all these "goodies" when they are so part of the culture we live in or are exposed to?

This was the first year we've really had to think about this. Our daughter eats pretty well and has previously been really good with treats. However, we realized after Halloween that like most children she would prefer to snack on candy if it's available.
We ended up having to hide and ration the candy. At least for now it has been out of sight out of mind. We allow a small treat every now and then (usually not even every day but often because we forget and she doesn't ask) and that is it. I'm assuming we'll do the same with the Christmas and Easter candy.
