Practice safe trick-or-treating

Remember, before you dig into that bag of treats, check for any tricks. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics [AAP] says although tampering is rare, "a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items." 

But we shouldn't just examine candy for tampering, if your child has any food allergies, make sure to dispose of any candy that could cause a "life-threatening reaction." 

Most popular Halloween candies, according to AAP, contain common allergens: tree nuts, milk, egg, soy or wheat. If everything looks good, then dig it, but don't eat everything all at once. 

Rationing your Halloween candy will not only prevent upset stomachs, but will you to enjoy your Halloween candy for days, and even weeks, later.
