No Tricks — Just Treats!

NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital Physician Offers Tips for a Safe and Sweet Halloween

Halloween is approaching, and many parents may wonder if trick-or-treating is safe. Dr. Luz Adriana Matiz, pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, suggests that with a few precautions, Halloween can be a happy and safe occasion for all. Dr. Matiz suggests that children limit trick-or-treating to familiar neighborhoods and neighbors. "It's important not to create too much fear in your children when you speak to them about Halloween safety," says Dr. Matiz. "But it's also essential that they understand that precautions must be taken." The following are 10 tips that every parent should remember:

  •     Always go trick-or-treating with your children.
  •     Do not let your children enter a stranger's home or apartment — have them ask for the treats while waiting outside the door.
  •     Do not let your children eat any candy before they get home and you examine it.
  •     Make sure your children throw away any unwrapped foods or candies.
  •     Make sure costumes are made of non-flammable material and are short enough so that your children don't trip.
  •     If they are wearing masks, make sure the eyeholes are the right size and in the right place so that vision is not blocked.
  •     If your children are old enough to trick-or-treat by themselves, have them go in groups — even if only on your block or in your building.
  •     If your children are trick-or-treating at nighttime, make sure their costumes are bright in color, or have them wear reflectors.
  •     If your children are walking on dark streets, have them take a flashlight. If they are walking in apartment buildings, accompany them inside.
  •     Instruct your children on proper street-crossing safety.
