www.eggfreeepicurean.com Amy Jones Anichini, Founder and CEO says: Keeping food allergic children safe on Halloween isn't easy -- but we have a way you can do it while maximizing the fun factor of trick-or-treating! Our strategy begins with allowing them to trick-or-treat and show off that costume, but make sure they don't eat ANYTHING from the bag until a parent goes through it at home. Believe it not, that's when the fun really begins! Before Halloween, stock up on safe, desirable treats for them (remember to read every label every time), and don't limit yourself only to food items. Have plenty of age- and gender-appropriate toys on hand, too (such a mini Play-Dough tubs, Silly Bands, temporary tatoos, and trendy trading cards). When your children have finished trick-or-treating, let them trade the candy they're allergic to for the safe candy and prizes. Make a celebration of it - instead of feeling deprived, your food allergic child can feel extra special!
