halloween-regHalloween trick or treating is an exciting time for children. But, too many treats can affect your child's teeth. The Grey Bruce Health Unit wants to make sure that Halloween treats won't leave your child with a jack-o-lantern smile.

Fun alternatives to candy

If you are concerned about the amount of candy that your child will receive, try rationing it over a few weeks. Another choice would be to let your child trade in Halloween candy for a video game, book, toy or trip to the movies. By reducing the amount of candy your child eats and by teaching your child that moderation is important, you won't have to worry about tooth decay and Halloween will still be fun.

seatbelt-regORILLIA – Five people who were not wearing their seat belts died on Ontario roads during the final week of the OPP Fall Seatbelt Campaign, much to the dismay of officers who were working hard to reduce these preventable losses. The rash of fatal collisions came at a time when the OPP had their sights set on seatbelt-related deaths reaching a record ten-year low.

The five deaths occurred within one week of the campaign (September 24-October 10, 2014) in four separate collisions (in OPP jurisdiction). Four of the five victims were ejected from the vehicle and in one of the incidents, neither the driver nor the passenger were buckled in, resulting in both people dying. In one of the collisions, the victim was not ejected from the vehicle but died from their injuries – an important reminder that being ejected is not the only reason people die when not wearing a seat belt during a collision.
