In brief: Halloween candy.

Really one one or two pieces a day.
If would be wise to get rid of (or donate) some of the candy and portion out the rest as treats, maybe one with lunch and one with dinner for a week or two. Then that's it.

In brief: Obesity

There is no such thing as a healthy amount of candy.
In the present state of things where more children are growing up fat and obese, any additional amount of sugar not normally contained in food should be disallowed. Following this rule will not only prevent obesity but also dental caries.
