"We encourage families to take advantage of this great time and money saving opportunity by bringing their kids to Denny's for a great meal on us either before or after their trick-or-treating activities." If you don't have a costume for the occasion, don't worry because Denny's offers kid's free colorful alien facemasks as part of its D-Zone(R) kid's program. As an added treat this year, free kid's meal coupons good for a return visit to a Denny's restaurant are available at participating locations. Denny's offers the following tips for parents about treats from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. - Children shouldn't snack while they're out trick-or-treating. They should wait until they get home and parents have had a chance to inspect the goodies. To help prevent children from munching, give them a snack or light meal before they go - don't send them out on an empty stomach. - Tell children not to accept - and, especially, not to eat - anything that isn't commercially wrapped. - When children bring their treats home, discard any home-made candy or baked goods. Parents of young children should also remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies or small toys. - Inspect commercially wrapped treats for signs of tampering, such as an unusual appearance or discoloration, tiny pinholes or tears in wrappers. Throw away anything that looks suspicious. - If juice or cider is served to children at Halloween parties, make sure it is pasteurized or otherwise treated to destroy harmful bacteria. Juice or cider that has not been treated will say so on the label. About Denny's: Denny's is America's largest full-service family restaurant chain.
