Trick-or-treating can be a lot of fun for kids on Halloween. But it is not without potential danger. So, what can you do to ensure the safety of your kids on this “scary” night?

Here are a few helpful tips:

2. Advise kids of potential dangers that might lurk behind closed doors and in those treats that they collect.

3. kids not to eat any of the treats that they collect before bringing them home. At home, you can inspect the treats and make sure that they are safe to eat. Treats should always be in original packages or wraps, and there should be no sign of tampering.

4. Toss out anything that looks like it may have been tampered with.

5. Inspect apples and wash thoroughly to remove germs that could cause illness.

Happy Halloween!
