If you’re going out this Halloween, keep some safety tips in mind.

Dr. Purva Grover with Cleveland Clinic first recommends starting in the daylight. If you are out after dark, it’s recommended to wear lighter-colored clothing or reflective costumes. Glow sticks and flashlights can also help make kids more visible.

A costume should be easy to walk in and short enough to expose your child’s feet or toes to avoid tripping.

If your child comes home with a huge mound of candy, the doctor says it should be consumed in moderation. Excess treats can be donated or frozen to be enjoyed later.

You may also want to have some other treats on hand for people who may have a food allergy.
