Here are some tips we have for making Halloween a great experience:
First teach your children to watch out for candy that has already been opened. These treats may have been tampered with or can contain choking hazards. For the same reason discourage your child from eating homemade treats and goodies that have been made by strangers.
Second you can encourage you children to get their recommended 60 minutes of daily activity by playing games and activities at Halloween parties. This can even include the walking you do while trick or treating. This will allow their bodies to burn off all those extra sugary calories from the candy and it will help limit the amount of post-Halloween rushes/crashes.
Lastly limit the amount of treats your child eats. It may sound exciting for a child to indulge in their Halloween candy haul, but we know this can negatively affect their health. Some parents discourage candy consumption by offering a dollar to their child for every pound of candy they “sell” to their parents.
We hope you have a great Halloween with your children! Stay Safe!
