Have a Healthy Halloween

A few tips to keep your goblins safe and healthy tonight.

  1. To limit the spread of viruses, Do not let trick-or-treaters put their hands in your candy bowl.   You do all the touching of your own bowl.  Most likely kids will have wiped their runny noses right before the touch your bowl.
  2. Check your neighborhood Sex Offender Registry before heading out. Always be in the know.   People move in and out all the time.
  3. Be responsible with the candy your kids receive.  Develop a plan together to either, give some away, limit a few each day, buy their candy from them, or you stash for “occasional use”.
  4. Make sure they get a healthy dinner!  Load up on vegetables and beans to ensure some good immune boosting vitamins.
  5. Have fun!  If you have more, leave comments for others to benefit.

Your husband looks really gross in that picture.

My kids are going to pick out their favorite candies, and leave the rest of the loot for the “Candy Fairy”. She’ll leave them money and take their candy. It will be the first time we’ve used the Candy Fairy, but they are excited about it.

Great list. I would add make sure your children drink a lot of water before, during, and after trick or treating. It keeps them hydrated, boosts immunity, and keeps the sugar from sitting on their teeth! Happy Halloween!
