Safe Kids Fast Fact - October 2012
Before you take your kids out for Halloween fun, be sure to feed them dinner or a heavy snack. Children who are hungry when they go out trick-or-treating are likely to sample candy before their parents have a chance to inspect it. Make sure children know that their candy must be inspected by their parents before they eat it and that homemade treats are off limits.
