Safe Halloween Tips

Halloween is a holiday that children and their parents enjoy together. But keeping your costumed trick-or-treaters safe while they go door-to-door is paramount. Follow these tips to ensure that your kids will have a Halloween they remember for all the right reasons:

Choose costumes in light or bright colors. Whether you buy a costume or make one, be sure it will be visible after dark. Put some reflective tape on goodie bags to help them show up when your kids walk down the street.

Eat before going out. Serve dinner or a good healthy snack before your kids hit the neighborhood. They’ll be less likely to gorge on the candy they collect if they’re already full.

Plan your route. Determine a clear and safe path through your neighborhood ahead of time. You should accompany small children, of course, and discuss safety with older kids going out as a group. Always carry a flashlight and cell phone.

Inspect candy before eating. Check through treat bags when children return home, and separate out any candy that looks suspicious. Don’t let kids consume too much at one time— ration it out they don’t get sick and unable to have yummy treats for days to come.
