Candy, candy, candy. What’s a food allergy parent to do?
Be aware that some chocolates contain dairy, many are processed side by side (or on the same equipment as) nuts, and nearly all contain soy lecithin. Other candy contains various allergens.
One of the best coping techniques for parents of kids with food allergies is to either trade the candy collected from trick-or-treating for something safe, or to just provide your own safe treats.
Here’s a link to one of my favorite allergen-free candies to make at home:
Chocolate Chewy Candy. Just like Tootsie Rolls, but better!
