My daughter has a tree nut allergy, which makes Halloween a little tricky. Before she can touch any of her Halloween candy, we go through all of it – swapping out the unsafe stuff for candy that we buy in advance. Thankfully, her allergy isn’t too bad, and there are lots of stuff that she can eat. Some kids with worse allergies can hardly eat any of their candy. It’s always a nice idea to have some non candy on hand for kids with food allergies – their parents will certainly appreciate it.
Have you heard of the teal pumpkin project? Sponsored by FARE (Food Allergy and Awareness), the teal pumpkin project is a great way to help make Halloween better for kids with food allergies. Go to the FARE Teal Pumpkin Project page to learn more and to print out the poster to show your support. Then paint a pumpkin teal and put it by your front door.
