Halloween, Safety and Teal Pumpkins

Halloween is a particularly tricky time for kids with food allergies. I'm always amazed at how many houses give out treats laden with peanuts, tree nuts and other common allergens. Although my son understands that he can get a safe treat from me when the house treat is a no-go, it's hard not to be disappointed for him. Holidays routinely make kids with food allergies feel left out and Halloween is the king among them.
