Halloween Candy Safety
Halloween is that love by both children and adults. Here are some simple and safe tips for kids and their holiday treats.
Snacking: Give kids a small meal or snack before they hit the streets for trick or treating. The urge to eat candy while out is great. But, children should wait until they get home. As a family you can inspect the candy and treats. Make a game of it by having them sort count and look at each piece.
Safe treats: Children and adults should not accept and eat treats that are not wrapped by the candy manufacturer. This way it may be easier to see if the tasty treats have been tampered with. Remember to throw away anything that is suspicious.
Food Allergies: If your child has a food allergy, check the label to ensure the allergen isn’t present. Children should not eat any home-baked goods they may have received.
Beware of Choking hazards: Very young children can choke on innocent items like gum, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys.
At SERVPRO of Gilbert, we hope that you have a safe and Happy Halloween!
