New Research Links Processed Meat With Cancer—Should You Panic?

    I like the "Switch Witch" idea... kids get to swap all that candy they got on trick-or-treating for a TOY of their choice that the Switch Witch will bring at night. My daughter is already looking forward to it. I'm just too nervous about what she's going to get in that conventional candy bag to let her "have at it"... all the GMO corn syrup and milk in milk chocolate from who-knows-where, I'm going with the Switch Witch idea this time. I LOVE your ideas for things to hand out. Drink box- great idea! I also love the organic gummy packs and the toy idea. Thanks for your hack ideas!!!
