The candy price war of the grocery stores means that many people will eat more candy over a long period of time, which in turn may lead to poorer dental health, according to dentists.

Of course we get worried about people’s health when we see that the store shelves have been emptied of candy. At Easter you put away  your regular habits, and then you may soon start to nibble lots of candy, which are harmful to your teeth,  county dentist Berit Binde Buskerud said to NRK.
She emphasizes that you should be allowed to enjoy extra treats at Easter, but also that is is important to get back to the healthy habits again when the holidays are over.
– It is when you are establishing bad habits and eating candy for a long time that there is a danger of injuries and cavities, she points out.
For several weeks Norwegians have had the opportunity to hoard candy for 29 NOK a kilo. However this will soon come to an end. Store managers tell Adresseavisen that prices probably will be increased again as early as next Tuesday.
