Since our youngest has a peanut/tree nut allergy, we are always looking for allergy friendly treats any time of year. We love FARE’s (Food Allergy & Research Education) Teal Pumpkin Project encouraging families to paint a teal pumpkin and share allergy friendly treats with trick-or-treaters. If you’re looking for ideas for class parties or something to pass out on Halloween, here are 50 allergy friendly Halloween treats to keep on hand. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for the blue pumpkin when you’re out trick or treating.
The Teal Pumpkin project started in 2014, and gains momentum each year. The project is all about handing out non-food options, but I wanted to give some ideas for nut free treats as well. It can be so hard to find Halloween candy that is safe for every allergy. So here are 50 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.
