Having a daughter that is eating gluten-free I was excited to see this list of gluten-free candy that Kierste of Simply+ Kiertse Blog put together.
I've also been excited to find out about the teal pumpkin project:
"This Halloween, FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) is encouraging communities to start a new
tradition that will help make this holiday season less scary for
children with food allergies: the Teal Pumpkin Project. This campaign encourages
people to raise awareness of food allergies by providing non-food
treats for trick-or-treaters and painting a pumpkin teal - the color of
food allergy awareness - to place in front of their house along with a
free printable sign from FARE to indicate they have non-food treats
The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and
respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a
fun, positive experience for all."
I think I will have both gluten-free candy and non-candy treats for the trick or treaters that come to my door. That way I hope to keep everyone happy! (including the grown-ups here who will put any left-over candy to good use ☺)
