For the 1 in 13 kids with a Food Allergy, Halloween doesn’t always conjure up fun times. Many Halloween candies are filled with the top 8 allergens which makes checking those treats before eating all the more important for kids with food allergies. Earlier this month I wrote about the Teal Pumpkin Project. Have you pledged to turn your house teal this Halloween? There’s still time!
To keep trick-or-treaters safe, here are some fun and safe items you can pass out this Halloween:
Vampire Teeth, Spider Rings
And here are more ideas from Kids with Food Allergies:
