According to the Center for Disease Control, 1 in 13 children now suffer from food allergies. Gluten is one of the most common allergens and even those not “allergic” to it are often “gluten intolerant” so more and more families (like mine) have gone gluten-free.
So what treats to choose to ensure a safe and fun Halloween that keeps all the YUM?
Yo’ Drops from Revolution Foods
Stretch Island Fruit Co. strips
Honest Kids organic drink pouches
Nature’s Path organic crispy rice treats
Endangered Species Bug Bites
Surf Sweets organic candy
Eli’s Earth Bars organic candy bars
Glee Gum (minis)
Of course, giving non-food “treasures” is another way to make Halloween gluten-free. Just choose items that are made from safe, natural materials and look for treasures that will last long past Halloween, such as polished rocks, recycled mood pencils, and mini decks of cards or games.
