Have a Safe and Happy Halloween: Check Children’s Goody Bags

By Rosemary Oarsley, MS, RN-BC

Most parents are aware of the basics of candy and food safety for their little ones going trick-or-treating on All Hallows Eve. Children shouldn’t snack while out trick-or-treating and wait until parents can inspect their goody bags.  Any treats that are choking habits such as gum, peanuts, hard candies or small toys, should be taken from small children.  Anything suspicious looking or wrapped items with tears, tiny holes or discoloration should be thrown away.

This year parents should also be aware of children accidentally receiving marijuana candy.  According to the New Jersey ROIC Drug Monitoring Initiative, the use of this candy has been increasing in New Jersey and nearby states.  The candy will resemble common hard or gummy candy or chocolate and even have packaging that resembles popular brands but when opened will emit a strong odor of marijuana.  Children who eat this candy may experience paranoia, anxiety, dizziness, short term memory loss or lose sense of reality.  Parents should dispose of any candy that is found to prevent children from having a very serious reaction from the drug.
