Halloween Hint-Check Your Child’s Candy Bag
Always check the candy before your child eats it. Even though you think people in your neighborhood are all on the up and up, you could be wrong. Be sure to inspect all candy that your child receives while they are trick or treating. Look for any abnormalities (sharp edges on candy that is supposed to be round, missing wrappers). If you think a piece of candy does not look right throw it out.
Never accept homemade treats.
I know people are trying to be creative when they make Halloween goods. Steer clear of these because there is no label for you to read so you don’t know what’s in the item your child is about to eat. You don’t really know what some people’s intentions are. It is best just to stick with the individually wrapped candy that comes from the store.
Read the label of your child’s Halloween candy.
Alternatives To Trick Or Treating
Okay if reading those tips gives you a headache or you just plain out don’t have time for all of that, read on. There are tons of other ways to celebrate Halloween without trick or treating. You could go to a trunk or treat. Basically instead of going from house to house you go to a church and get candy from people’s trunks. If you go to a church, go to one that your church is having. This is a big help because it will be people you already know well.
