The Importance of Preventative Care for Women’s Health

With Halloween creeping around the corner, the health experts at Antelope Valley Medical Center are here to share some health tips to keep children and teens safe this spooky season.

Eat Dinner Before Trick-or-Treating

While many children and teens are eager to head out early for trick-or-treating, it’s recommended to slow down and have dinner beforehand to prevent an over-indulgence on candy with an empty stomach. Rather than having dinner later, plan to eat before going trick-or-treating so your little ones have satisfied their hunger with a nutritious meal.

Limit the Sweets & Treats

While it may be tempting for your children and teens to dig into their candy stash as soon as you get home, you can make plenty of homemade Halloween goodies as well. From banana ghosts to themed veggie platters and colored food items, there are healthier ways to get into the Halloween spirit.

Some healthy Halloween recipes to try:

Remember Your Mask

As we continue to adjust to the COVID-19 outbreak, trick-or-treating may still look different this year. Because COVID-19 primarily spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets, it is recommended that parents, children, and teens wear masks when heading out this year—even if you’ve been vaccinated.
