Trick or Treat

Heading out with your kids to go trick-or-treating this Tuesday? Here are some tips you might find handy.

  • If using a child under the age of one year as your shill, keep these guidelines in mind: Children under the age of one shouldn’t eat chocolate, nuts, honey, or anything they could choke on. This pretty much excludes all candy, so you’re in luck! These guidelines also act as a great excuse for older siblings or spouses who might take issue with you taking candy out of the mouths of babes.
  • For shills over the age of one, the guidelines are less helpful. In general, they can eat many types of candy, but naturally you wouldn’t want to damage their young little teeth. Sticky candies or difficult to chew candies should be confiscated. Also, nuts shouldn’t be consumed by children under the age of two, or older if there are nut allergies in the family. You wouldn’t want your precious little darling bouncing off the walls, so you’ll probably want to limit their chocolate consumption.
  • For school age kids, things become much more difficult. Here you may want to resort to the “my other child is sick at home” ploy – keeping in mind that you’ll likely get less than a typical trick-or-treater, since most people scoff at the idea. Or, if you have an infant available, use them. Most people give the same amount of candy for infants as for older kids. If you’re really desperate, pull out an old stroller, wrap up a doll in layers of blankets, and stick some kitty ears on the top. Make sure to leave the stroller in the shadows, but point out your sleeping “baby.”

If you keep these tips in mind, you’re sure to have a great experience and an even greater haul of delicious candy!

    LOL! Oh, that’s what we ended up doing on Halloween with our 15 month old. My oldest daughter went around trick or treating with TWO bags, saying one was for her sister (which she intended). Most didn’t even give it a second thought and happily contributed to both bags. Maybe one or two questioned her, but my daughter was sincere in her replies that it WAS for her sister.

    Of course, I wouldn’t let my 15 month old eat any of the candy (she did get some Teddy Grahams in her bag though) so we had to do our parental duties. :)
