Halloween doesn’t have to be a bummer for kids with food allergies! The only thing that should spook you on Halloween is the little goblins ringing your doorbell on October 31.
Your child’s health shouldn’t put the scare in you. Whether you have a nut-allergy ghost in your house this month or you’re just looking to be a good neighbor, this Nut-Free Halloween Candy Guide will help you decide what to dole out, and what is safe to eat.
Remember to double check the ingredients each and every time as recipes and manufacturing practices change periodically.
The Nut-Free Halloween Guide also includes a list of non-edible treats that are ideal for hand-outs. You can find most of these items at the $1 store, Michaels or Oriental Trading.
Check with your local businesses also to see if they are selling (for cheap) or giving away coupons that can be redeemed for free or discounted services. A few years back, when Matthew was still in lower school, we received a voucher for free bowling and a coupon for a free Wendy’s frosty.
