Kid friendly [and safe!]

halloween

Working in an allergy sensitive environment has really started to open my eyes to peanut/tree nut free, gluten free, casein free foods. Reading labels of foods has become a new habit of mine, as the school I work in has strict allergy guidelines to ensure the safety of our kiddos.

With Halloween just around the corner, it has become so much harder than I thought to find candies safe for all six of my kiddos to eat during our trick-or-treating celebration.

For the sake of your own sanity, I’m going to do all the work for you! I’ve begun compiling a list of allergy-safe goodies for kids [and grown ups!] to enjoy.
