Some preventative measures
Offer to buy back some, or all, of the candy.
Check to see if a local dentist has a similar offer.
Keep the least toxic candy, such as chocolate bars and ration them out over the coming weeks.
Remind kids to be especially thorough when brushing their teeth if they have been eating sweets.
Encourage them to drink water to reduce sugar spikes.
If they feel nauseous actively encourage them to throw up, if at all possible.
Happy Homeopathy and Happy Hallowe'en to all.
