These tips will help keep your child safe

Orlando, Florida (Ivanhoe Newswire)-Have you got a costume? Candy? Are all your routes planned? But do you know where the real danger lies in Halloween? There’s a lot to think about this holiday between the unsafe outfits and the delta variants that haunt our plans for dangerous treats.

Here’s how to avoid something scary for you or your kids this year:

We’ve all lived the nightmare of COVID-19 … but how does it bother our Halloween? The CDC recommends playing outdoors at intervals and safely. Instead of handing out sweets this year, leave the candies on the patio and avoid contact.

According to experts, costume face masks do not provide protection against the virus, and wearing both can impair breathing. Your best bet is to wear a Halloween-themed protective mask instead.

Cheap costumes can also be scary. Most outfits are flame-retardant or non-flame-retardant. Pay attention to the fabric. Natural fibers burn out from you, but polyester materials burn toward your skin.

And don’t forget to slow down. On average, children are more than twice as likely to be killed in a car on Halloween as on any other day.

Some of these treats can be pretty scary, but which is the best and which is the worst?

Fun-sized peanut M & M contains protein and fiber and has only 90 calories. Small Snickers have only 80 calories.

On the contrary, Reese’s peanut butter cups are packed with 220 calories and 16 grams of sugar.

Eighty-two percent of parents do not include vision aids in their children’s costumes. Decorate the costume with reflective tape, but avoid using glow sticks. The liquid inside can cause illness if the child breaks and ingests it.

Another tip-put an emergency ID on your child’s outfit or arm, along with your name, phone number, and address, in case your child leaves.
