Allergy Free Halloween Treats

Posted by on 04 October 2012 in Be Informed, Featured Posts, Special Needs | 2 comments

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.

Halloween Cupcakes can be delicious and allergy-friendly! These cupcakes are vegan, egg-free, dairy-free, casein-free; and wheat-free, gluten-free. Thanks, Bob!

I absolutely love Bob’s Red Mill . They offer a fantastic line of dairy-free and gluten-free baking products.

  1. Great idea!

  2. Another tip would to be take allergy free candy out with you when trick or treating. So when your child asks for a treat on the road you are prepared:) I love knowing I’m not the only mom with allergy kids who still lets them go out for a night of fun:)
