If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know I have a child with a peanut/tree nut allergy. We not only face food allergy challenges during our travels, but in our daily life as well.
With Halloween around the corner, I wanted to share with you the Teal Pumpkin Project from Food Allergy & Research Education (FARE) because this organization is very important to our family. FARE is encouraging food allergy families to paint a teal pumpkin to show they have non-food treats available. I am not asking anyone to paint a teal pumpkin (although they are pretty), but I wanted you to consider having treats available for kids that suffer from food allergies. This post is going to give you 40 ideas for Allergy Friendly Halloween Treats to make your job a little easier.
*Please note, these are merely suggestions that work for our family. Be sure to read all labels before sharing these treats with a child with a food allergy.
