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
- 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.
