On Halloween Costumes & Treats: Does Your Kid’s Choice Matter?

Boo!!!! It’s the time of the year once again when moms like us are busy scouting for costumes, sweet treats and listing down the schedule of Trick & Treat events around the metro! I’ve had my fair share attending of Halloween parties here and there just like you. I believe I can help you out today by giving some tips, tricks and ideas that could help you pull off a memorable Halloween experience with your children.

My eldest Noa’s preference is the biggest factor I consider in choosing any costume for her to wear. For Halloween, she doesn’t like to wear anything scary or spooky (which I really love of her). She prefers girly/princess-like or magical ones.

Halloween Costume Inspiration for Children

If you don’t have that much time to think of a nice Halloween costume for your children to wear, you can consider the following:

  1. Celebrity Kids — If you’re a fan of their parents, I’m sure you have already come across them on their mom or dad’s social media account. You can borrow idea from what these cute celebrity kids wore last Halloween.

2.  Your Children’s “Favorites” — We spend time with our children almost 24/7 so I am confident that somehow you know what their favorites are. You can draw costume inspiration from their favorite cartoons, food, toys, animals, activity, books, etc.

3, Ask your children straight — We always hear people and experts say that we should never underestimate the mind of a child. Children are unique and smart in their own way so I’m pretty sure we can get a response when we ask them directly what they want to wear for Halloween.

This is the simplest and easiest way to determine their costume preference. And at the same time, we help nurture their confidence in the choices they make by involving them in the decision-making process.

Treats for my Sweets

When it comes to choosing or preparing treats for children, my rule has always been: “I don’t give anything that I won’t allow even my own kids to eat.”

Again, think about the treats that your children love. Or if you’re the parent, will you even let your kids eat them? You can also consider giving treats that are on the nutritious side and the lesser sugar, the better.

Like what I’ve said, children are unique and smart in their own ways. As parents, it is our responsibility to provide an avenue for them to be at their best. We are here to nurture them physically by giving them proper nutrition through a healthy, complete and balanced diet. But let us admit it that there are days when our children prefer to play rather than eat and it makes us worry.

For days like this, let us not fret because we can always give them a vitamin supplement with Vitamin C, Lysine, and Taurine like Propan TLC that is appropriate for their age and needs. An important thing in choosing a good vitamin supplement for our kids is the presence of Lysine and B-Vitamins because these two can help them boost and maintain their appetite. Propan also has 100% RENI of Vitamin C that helps our children have stronger immune system.

So mommies and daddies, this Halloween, let us not forget to consider our child’s choice in choosing what to wear for his or her Halloween costume and the treats to be served and given away. When we let them participate in the decision-making process, we make them confident about making choices, which is an important life-skill that they must learn even at a young age.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you have the most BOO-tiful experience this year with your children! ♥
