Continuing our tips on how to have the healthiest holiday spread, here's how you can ensure your kids have an awesome Halloween!

Got trick-or-treaters in the house? Make safety the first treat of the night.
  • Be sure they’re seen. If your child goes out after dark, bright, reflective costumes will help cars and other trick-or-treaters see them. Consider adding reflective tape for even greater visibility.
  • Costume cautions. Masks can obstruct vision, so avoid them if you can. Makeup is a better choice, but make sure it’s non-toxic and test it on a small area first to check for reactions.
  • Stick to the path. If they go out without you, your kids should travel only in familiar, well-lit areas with friends. And let them know to never enter a stranger’s house.
