Fall is upon us, and Halloween can be especially tricky for the millions of children who manage life-threatening food allergies. This year, please consider including some safe, non-food items for the trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood who aren’t able to enjoy Halloween candy with their friends and siblings.
Examples of inexpensive candy alternatives include stickers, pencils, bubbles, glow sticks, and dollar store trinkets.
Then, paint a pumpkin teal for food allergy awareness and put it in your front yard to let these kids know they can trick-or-treat safely at your house on Halloween night.
Evie and lots of children like her will THANK YOU! 💙 Plus, unlike the furry Snickers in the back of your pantry from last Halloween, the leftovers from these treats never go bad and can be reused year after year.
