Houston (October 25, 2017) – Halloween is known to children far and wide as “the night without rules” and “the eve of all things sugar.” For the poor and unfortunate souls who have to manage the chaos that is Halloween night (with children), you’ll be happy to know that the festivities this year take place on a Tuesday – smack in the middle of a school week. How, you ask, can we make this evening (and the morning after) a little less like “Dawn of the Living Dead?”
Kelsey-Seybold board-certified pediatrician Helene Sheena, M.D., F.A.AP., has a few suggestions:
Adorning Your Little Ghouls.
Make Trick-or-Treating Trouble Free.
Put a Dent on that Sugar High
Offer a filling meal that your kids enjoy eating before they head out to trick-or-treat – it leaves less room in their belly for a bag of candy.
