Do you know the BEST allergen-free candy?
Do you have the BEST allergen-free candy?
Halloween is almost here!
For those of you celebrating Halloween, it is time to get your costumes finalized (we’re going as the Avengers this year: I’m Captain America, Kristie is Thor, Emmett is Iron Man and Luke is Hulk… in his tiny baby muscle suit)!
And if you’re like my house, you’ll also need to buy more Halloween candy since the bags you already purchased have “disappeared” at some point over the past 2 weeks (there’s no shame if you phrase it as a mystery. I’m also fairly certain that the calories also don’t count if nobody *really* knows what happened to the candy)!
But this also means that it’s your last chance to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project and hand out allergen-free candy and treats for all the food allergic kids!
It’s NOT too late to Participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project
I’ve written a post earlier this month about the Teal Pumpkin Project as well as some ideas on how to participate. I highly recommend you review that post first for background and some ideas.
But this close to Halloween, I know you might need some better (or at least easier) ideas. Including allergen-free candy options.
So I’ve gathered a few resources that you’ll want to read.
Last Minute Resources for Teal Pumpkin Project
1. The first and, I think, the best resource is from a friend’s site called Landy’s List. I’m going to feature her site in more detail when I do my food allergy series in a few months, but I wanted to share her Facebook page now because she has curated a lot of great posts regarding food allergy and about the Teal Pumpkin Project.
2. Second, I found this post on Kids with Food Allergies about some of the best candies you can get that are free from the Top-8 food allergens (wheat, egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, fish, shellfish). These allergen-free candies are probably able to be found at your local supermarket or perhaps a natural foods store.
Making it Easier for You
But if you’re like me, then procrastination is a major part of your life. So I’ve created a list of the BEST allergen-free foods you can easily find at any supermarket, gas station, or drug store. In fact, probably the only place you can’t find these candies is in my house (such a mystery where all the candy went??!!)
Help Every Child Enjoy Halloween!
If you can, share this post (or this infographic) on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter. I’ll be doing the same for the next few days so that we can get as many procrastinators involved in the Teal Pumpkin Project as possible!
