I loved Halloween as a kid. Still do! Now, with a kid of my own, it’s double the fun. But, when a child, like mine, has allergies and a very restricted diet, it’s hard to tell him over, and over, and over, “No, you can’t eat that Halloween treat. You’re allergic to it.” Thankfully, more and more allergy-friendly options are becoming available– Take the time to make your own treats, or buy candies at a store or online. When your child comes home from an evening of trick-or-treating you’ll be able to offer him allergy-friendly alternatives. If you’re really gung-ho, the following suggestions make great Halloween party ideas. If your child doesn’t have allergies, consider these options for neighbors and classmates.
