Health Tip: Suggestions for a Healthy Halloween
Keep your kids safer

(HealthDay News) -- Children look forward to Halloween more than many other holidays, but the occasion doesn't come without potential dangers.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests how to keep your family safer on Halloween:

  • Store-bought costumes should be labeled "flame-resistant." If you make your own costume, use flame-resistant fabrics, such as polyester or nylon.
  • Kids should wear bright, reflective costumes. Or add strips of reflective tape, so they'll be more visible.
  • Children should always use a flashlight for better visibility.
  • Kids should wear makeup and hats rather than masks that can obscure vision. Test the makeup first to see if it causes an allergic reaction.
  • Children should never wear decorative contact lenses.
  • Carefully inspect all candy. Check for allergens before allowing your child to eat any treats.
