It’s Candy Time

This Halloween, Healthy Ontario wants to give you some tips to continue your Healthy lifestyle while going trick or treating with your family:

To continue your daily physical activity, you can try: 

Walking: Walking is good for your health. You can include walking as your physical activity by walking with your child when going trick or treating instead of driving. To make it fun, you can invite family and friends to walk in a group.

Biking: You can also encourage your child to ride a bike when going trick or treating.


Remember to be safe. Here are some safety tips for your Halloween:

  • Use sidewalk
  • Beware of high-risk drivers by looking in both directions twice before you cross the street
  • Wear a helmet if using a bicycle
  • You can also wear reflective accessories or bright colors for night time
  • Take a flashlight
  • Make sure you only accept factory-wrapped treats
  • Do not accept rides from strangers
  • Do not enter homes unless supervised by an adult
  • Only visit well-lit homes
  • And remember to remind children to keep their teeth clean after eating candy!

For more tips on walking and biking, you can visit our National Safety Month blog.
