Food Allergy Fun on Halloween - PSA video from Egg-Free Epicurean

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!

i like the way she starts off. That you should let the child know that they do have a good allergy so that they know that this food can make them sick. Also telling them what to do and how to take care of them selfs in their daily life. It would need to take place at just the right age so that they can understand what is going on. This is very helpful for parents who don't really know how to approach this topic with the kids.

AP's curator insight, April 28, 2013 2:31 PM

Although one's child may not have food allergies, I think that it is a great idea to make allergy free treats for the class or for snacks after sports games. As someone who can't eat gluten or dairy, I have found myself to be irritated when I see others eating whatever they like, however I simply can't eat anything I choose. My food allergies completely run my life and I am in college. Imagine how a child feels when all of their friends can eat a pizza at a birthday party and they have to bring a boring meal from home. Although food allergies may not run in ones family, it is necessary to remember the children that cannot eat whatever they want. By making allergy free treats, everyone can enjoy the snack, not just the kids who don't have food allergies.
