Alternative Halloween Treats

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 available. 
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 ☺)
