Halloween is a great time to hand out candy, but it can also be a danger for children. In this blog post, we will talk about how you, as the parent, can make sure that your child has an enjoyable and safe experience with Halloween candy. We’ll discuss what types of candy are best for kids, why they should have just one piece at a time, and more!
Let The Kids Eat It At Home
Halloween is a holiday of fun and festivities, not an excuse to overindulge in sugar. When the kids go out trick-or-treating, they will be overwhelmed with candy anyway; it’s best if you let them eat as much as they want when they get home where there are no distractions or other food around.
It’s also safer for them to eat candy here, where you can keep an eye on the quantity they are eating. When they are out on the streets, it’s difficult to know how much candy they might be exposed to or what types of candy.
Also, if you want them to brush their teeth before bedtime, letting them eat too much sugar beforehand can make this more challenging for everyone involved!
Give Kids A Goody Bag
There are several ways you can make sure your kids don’t overindulge in Halloween candy. One great idea is to give them each a goody bag that contains only the amount of candy they should eat in one night, and then have it be their responsibility to take care of this.
This way, if your child goes out trick-or-treating with friends or siblings, he doesn’t feel bad when others get more than him! It’s also much easier for everyone involved because there won’t be any kid pouting at home after not getting enough treats from all his hard work! There are also services like Pick and Mix that will provide you with premade and customized goody bags, so you don’t have to trek to the candy store. Giving individual bags will ensure no one else gets tempted by what anyone else has been issued – especially important if the candy tempts other people living in your household!
By doing this, you keep everyone happy and healthy, all while still giving out Halloween treats!
Don’t Eat Anything That Looks Suspicious
Don’t give out candy that you wouldn’t eat yourself. If it smells or looks like something is wrong with it, don’t pass it along to trick-or-treaters, and certainly do not let your children eat anything suspicious-looking either. At the same time, never taste test a piece of candies before handing them over! This might seem like common sense, but some people forget this tiny detail when they are in an excited frenzy on Halloween night! It’s better safe than sorry, so be careful what you hand out.
Here are some guidelines for what you should do if candy looks suspicious:
– If it is damaged, melted,suspicious-looking, or crushed, don’t give this out to kids!
-If there are any tears in the wrapper or packaging, throw away that piece of candy
-Make sure the seal on all wrappers has not been broken
The best way to keep your children safe around Halloween time is by keeping an eye on how many pieces they eat and making sure they brush their teeth afterwards! This will ensure everyone stays healthy throughout October 31st.
Be Mindful Of Allergies
The most important thing to remember is that many children have food allergies, and it’s best to keep this in mind when handing out candy. If you don’t know whether or not your child has sensitivity, talk with them about it! Also, if you’re going on a long trick-or-treat run, make sure they eat first, so they aren’t feeling hungry while walking from house to house. Being mindful of their diet before heading out for the night will ensure everyone stays safe during Halloween time!
If they have a peanut allergy, it’s best to avoid passing out anything that contains peanuts or peanut butter. Even though this is not common in candy anymore, many candies now have nuts due to factory processing. There’s still a chance, so be careful how much you hand out and what type of candy goes into the goodie bags. It’s better safe than sorry when dealing with sensitive allergies, so err on the side of caution here. The last thing anyone wants is for someone else to get sick from an allergic reaction after eating their treat!
Be Prepared For Kids To Ask For Seconds And Thirds!
Halloween is a day where people spend time giving out candy. You should make sure you have enough for trick-or-treaters and yourself. You never know how many kids might show up.
Be ready with a bowl of fun-sized candies if someone needs change or wants more than one piece of candy at a time! It’s also important not to eat too much because then you’ll feel sick after trick-or-treating is over. Make sure that if there are any children under three years old at your house, keep all hard treats like popcorn balls out of sight until they’re gone because they could pose as a choking hazard. If possible (and this isn’t necessary), try bringing your pets indoors before allowing trick-or-treaters to enter your home.
A good tip is to ask for the most popular candies of the season before you buy them all up! You can then use those as a treat or put them in an extra-special pumpkin with some other candy favourites that are sure to be gone fast.
Candy Corn is known as America’s favourite Halloween candy, so stock up on it early and don’t miss out on this great opportunity! Another great idea if you want more than one type of candy but still want something easy, try buying Skittles at wholesale stores like Costco around October time because they sell large bags (and not just during Halloween!)
Keep these tricks up your sleeve so that no matter what kind of holiday goes down – whether it’s trick-or-treating with kids or handing out candy at a party – you know exactly how to ensure safety around Halloween time. With just a little bit of planning, everyone will have an enjoyable fall evening ahead of them!
