Bargain

Bargain with your kids and ask them to trade their stash of candy for a favorite nonfood item, iPod gift cards, sneakers, jeans, a chance to stay up just a little later on a school night, or cash always works!  Pay for each sweet treat they "sell" you, and let them "earn" money for a toy or game they want to buy. Reward your kids for making good decisions! Be prepared to bargain other treats for your kids stash.
