Halloween 2016: Non-Candy Treats

Since the arrival of the sensationally popular Teal Pumpkin Project (developed by FARE), food-allergic children can trick or treat with less fear at houses decorated with teal-colored pumpkins, which indicate that allergy-friendly loot is being offered.

Here are Allergic Living’s top picks of candy alternatives to include – either in your bowl of goodies or as a valued toy to swap out for questionable goodies your child has gathered. Let’s make October 31 safe and inclusive!
