Some simple precautions will safeguard young trick-or-treaters, experts say

MONDAY, Oct. 26 (HealthDay News) -- There's no trick to keeping children and the rest of the family safe on Halloween. Some simple precautions will ensure that the night is a treat for everyone.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers the following safety tips:

  • Choose costumes that are bright and reflective and short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame. Add reflective tape or striping to costumes and treat bags to make children more visible.

Only cross streets at recognized crosswalks. Never cross between parked cars. Never assume the right of way -- it can be difficult for motorists to see trick-or-treaters.
  • When your children return home, sort and check their treats. Throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
  • Allow children to dr
