This is often a problem of over- eating rather than poisoning. • Many people like to use dry ice in punch. It is non- poisonous, but it should not be placed in individual glasses or where children or adults could come into con- tact with it. Dry ice can in- jure tissues in the throat and cause frostbite to the skin. If you suspect that your child has been exposed to something poisonous this Halloween, call the Seattle Poison Center at 526-2121 or toll free at 1-800-732-6985. Have a safe Halloween! A lot more than junk food can be given out on Halloween gum, packaged nut and chip combinations, individual packs of low- or no-salt chips, peanut butter and cheese crackers (we recom- mend peanut butter without added sugars), and non- edibles, too, such as nickels for UNICEF, pennies wrapped in foil, balloons, erasers, pencils, tooth- brushes, plastic rings, game stickers, coupons from your local ice cream, pizza or burger place can be sub- stituted for sugary treats. If you tell your neighbors that you are trying to cut down on your child's sweets and ask their cooperation, chances are they will assist you. Parties at home can in- clude cheese kisses, ,4 cup of popcorn wrapped in baggies for later popping, cereal and nut mix, unsalted peanuts, and pretzels and chips. If your children have been mak- ing the rounds in the neigh- borhood, separate the healthy treats from the junk food. If you have already dis- cussed nutrition with your children they will recognize what is good for them. Children imitate. If you say, "This is great, this is what we want" or "We don't want that," your child will likely agree. Have mini bags of unsalted popcorn, peanuts, pretzels, some pen- nies, or another substitute on hand and give the child one of these for each piece of junk food you remove from If you are concerned about the junk foods in your child's Halloween booty, you can assure them of healthy teeth and teach them about nutri- tion at the same time, accord- ing to the Seattle-King Coun- ty Department of Public Health. If your children have been accustomed to sugary snacks and you wish to make a change, have them help you plan the treats your family will give out. Stress that health treats with more than just sugar in them is the challenge of the day. Unsweetened fruit juice now comes in individual boxes or small cans (6 oz.), and may be purchased for trick or treaters.
