For the first time since the county's inception, chesterfield county's children will no longer receive a treat as a response to the age old question "Trick or Treat?" on Halloween. Citing an increase in allergies, diabetes, obesity and other health-related issues, the county Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance late last week preventing people from handing out treats on Halloween. According to the ordinance, houses that hand our candy or other treats on October 31st will be subject to a $250 fine.

It’s easy to see why the Board of Supervisors made this decision. When asked about the new ordinance, Midlothian Supervisor Leslie Haley said, "We were elected to look after the well-being of our citizens. The sole purpose of Halloween is to get as many treats as possible. This doesn't live up to our commitment to provide a healthy, safe community for our residents."

Although it’s hard to argue against something that will have a positive impact on the health of the county’s youngest residents, not everyone agreed with the Board's decision. "Let them be kids," said Chesterfield resident Sally Johnson, "A few weeks of excessive candy eating will not determine the health of a person. You have to look at all of their food choices, not just what they are choosing to eat after Halloween."

County residents are planning a protest to ask the Board to reconsider their decision, however, the next Board meeting is scheduled to take place on November 1st. It seems, for now at least, the children of chesterfield county will have a healthy Halloween this year.
