Trick-or-treating with food allergies
What child hasn’t been told not to eat any Halloween candy until it’s inspected back home? This precaution is exponentially more important for food allergic children, particularly if they’re allergic to nuts or peanuts.
Halloween makes their anaphylaxis danger more insidious, for two reasons:
- Never mind food allergen labeling, Halloween- size packaging might not list any ingredients at all
- Halloween-size products are probably produced in a different facility and have different food allergen exposures from their brand’s more familiar larger size products
While all this additional insidious danger might sound discouraging, we have good news. There are steps you can take to make your food allergic child’s Halloween trick-or-treat experience not just safe, but a fun, extended celebration. In future posts over the next week we will elaborate.
