Too Much Sugar At Halloween Is No Treat

Absolutely make sure you have no distractions in your vehicle.

As goblins and ghouls prepare to hit the streets for trick-or-treating, health experts agree it's important to think about just how much sugar they're consuming on the holiday and every day.

Safe Kids Shawnee County also recommends adult supervision for kids up to 12 years old.

But for trick or treaters of any age, make costumes more visible.

Also when out after dark, someone should carry a flashlight and kids should wear or carry something with reflective tape or material.

With Halloween coming up, the members of the Office for Student Engagement are having a busy time setting up the "Fall Carnival" and "Trick or Treat with the Greeks". No doubt, one of many adults' greatest childhood memories entails dressing up on Halloween and collecting a pillowcase full of candy. With so many kids out and about, Halloween can turn into an actual nightmare, if they're not staying safe.

And for the handfuls of candy your kids are about to come home with, "Absolutely sort through it, check it out anything that's been opened don't eat it".

In the past few years, more families in MI and across the nation have opted to hand out non-food treats at Halloween, such as small toys and games, which Sawyer said also makes the holiday more inclusive for kids with food allergies.

The Chamber says they have put the event on for 29 years and this has never happened.

Dr. Calvin Wilson of Kool Smiles says, "Don't let your children go to sleep with all of that candy and sugar on their teeth that night".

ยท Stay in a group and make sure to communicate where to go.

Now if you don't want your kids eating all their candy you could send some of it to help a good cause. Troopers also ask that motorists drive with headlights on, even during daylight and dusk hours, so that other vehicles and pedestrians can see the vehicle from farther distances.
