We hardly EVER give our daughter candy unless we're at a celebration, etc., then it's only lolipops. My daughter's dentist suggested only one piece of candy a day if we do give it to her :]

Since my boys are only 1 y/o, they only get to lick on a sucker if I happen to be eating one, but that's about it.

Nope. The only candy-like thing our son (22 months) has had is fruit leather, sorta like Fruit by the Foot, but I make it myself with real fruit so it's much better than that out of the box stuff, and he only gets that on occasion since the process takes so long.

We rarely ever give her candy and we rarely buy candy for ourselves so that it is not a tease to her.

 Not really. I really limit the amount of junk food we have in the house. I dont give any candy to them until they are a year to year and a half

Sometimes and if we are home I brush his teeth right after he is done eating it.
