It’s a fact. The majority of kids love to eat candy. The would probably eat it every day if they could, making it necessary for their parents to closely monitor how much candy their kids are actually eating on a daily basis. Although eating candy sometimes is absolutely fine, it’s important not let kids eat too much candy as tooth decay is the most common problem when it comes to kids and eating. The main culprit is the sugar in the candy, which tends to stick to the teeth, leading to tooth decay.
