Are your children going Trick-or-Treating? To keep them safe healthy – make a plan for candy consumption.
* Eating a good meal before parties or trick-or-treating will keep kids from filling up on Halloween treats.
* Sort and check treats after kids are home. Tampering is rare but it’s safest to throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
* Children’s caloric needs are less than adults. Plan to limit treats to one or two pieces of candy each day. Many kids forget all about their “stash” within a few days.
