Another Safe Halloween for Peanut Allergic Kids

Halloween night was a lot of fun. Despite two of our kids having food allergies, we look forward to Halloween. Our kids trick or treat just like every other kid out there. At the end of the night, they dump out there loot and trade with their friends. The trading actually adds to the excitement.

One of our young neighbors asked our oldest (10 yrs old) daughter, "Why do you have so many candies you can't eat?" She replied like a champ by explaining how her body doesn't like those candies and it makes her very sick. The explaination worked for him and they just kept on trading.

So, for those of you who are newly diagnosed and wonder how you will ever get through Halloween with child food allergies, hang in there. You can have as much fun as anyone else.

Sounds like your daughter is a very smart little girl. I see one of your children is allergic to peanuts, but didn't see what your 3rd child is allergic to. My son allergic to wheat, rye, barley, egg, milk, peanut,and dogs. He's 2, so that is a challenge in itself:D
