What Halloween treats can we give kids with food allergies?
We hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween this year! Here are some spooky treat ideas for people with food allergies! The Teal Pumpkin Project and Melissa & Doug are raising awareness of food allergies and promoting inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. By putting a teal pumpkin on your porch, you’re showing families with food allergies that you are a safe place and have a treat that can be enjoyed without fear or worry.
Halloween is traditionally a time for sweets, sweets, and more sweets, but who says kids must eat candy from dawn till dusk just because that’s how it’s always been done?
Even if your children do not have a food allergy they will certainly get their fair share of sweets. It’s nice to try and think outside the box a bit as far as Halloween treats are concerned. It’s great (and much appreciated by all parents) to give out small, hands-on toys that encourage creative play and fun such as: bubbles, stickers, tattoos, simple crafts, and small toys. These are sure to be items that the kids–and parents–will be happy to see, as they won’t mean more sugar for their little bodies.
