Well, the chill is in the air, kids are back in school, and football is being played. The end of summer has escaped us, depositing us in a season of color and change. Many of us are trying to extract every ounce of time outdoors before the cold begins its grip.
One of the many things the fall season brings us is Halloween. Every year many try and raise the bar and outdo each other with elaborate and creative costumes. Whether you choose to be Yoda, Donald Trump or a Minion let’s remember to be safe this Halloween and ensure our children are safe as well:
- During trick or treating it is important the children travel in groups to ensure safety.
- The need to wear bright colors or reflective tape to be visible to motor vehicle traffic.
- Only eat factory wrapped treats and be suspicious of any signs of tampering.
- Remind children never to enter the home or vehicle of a stranger.
- Remind the children to only approach homes with outside lights on, showing a sign that they are welcome.
Enjoy the Halloween season and remember to limit the amount of treats you consume and supplement health snacks when possible.
