Halloween is a time when parents who have children with allergies need to be very careful in monitoring the candy their children eat. Reading labels is extremely important at this time as some candies may have ingredients such as peanuts, tree nuts or milk that you would never assume were there. To assist parents, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) has prepared a list of tips to help keep your children safe while having fun this year on Halloween.

-If your child will collect candy on Halloween, have something special ready to trade for the candy he or she can’t eat.
-Give the treats your child cannot eat to other children - for example, at a local hospital or through a food bank.
-Pass out nonfood items, such as Halloween stickers or small toys, to trick-or-treaters to promote food allergy awareness. Encourage your neighbors to do this as well.
-Create a “candy swap” so that allergen-containing candies can be traded for other treats such as stickers or toys.
-Take the focus off of trick-or-treating by hosting a costume party that emphasizes fun instead of candy. -Halloween stickers, pencils, spider rings and stamps are great alternatives for goody bags.
-Provide neighbors with allergy-safe candies for your child or ask neighbors to hand out only candy with individualized labels - so kids with allergies can determine whether the treat is safe to eat or not.
-Teach children to politely refuse offers of cookies and other homemade treats.
-Remember that candy ingredients can vary for different sizes of the same product such as full-size candy bars and their miniature versions, which are not always individually labeled.
-Have your trick-or-treater eat dinner before going out on Halloween night, so that he or she is not tempted by hunger to eat a treat!
-Make sure your child carries his or her medicines while trick-or-treating, in case a reaction occurs.
-Accompany your child trick-or-treating, or, if he or she is old enough to go without an adult, have him or her go with friends who know about his or her food allergy.

Recipe: Martha's Grilled Chesse Bar Idea

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!


Did you catch Martha on Oprah yesterday afternoon? Well, I loved her "grilled cheese bar" idea to have at a party or an event. I love grilled cheese and she of course took it way up a notch. Click here to see all 13 of her grilled cheese ideas, which is you favorite or do you have another idea?
Of course with my abundance of apples, I chose the apple recipe to share with you ;0)

For a tasty twist on the standard grilled cheese, add slices of crisp fall apples. Choose a good eating apple, such as McIntosh, and cut it into thick slices. Layer the slices and cheddar cheese atop bread, such as sesame, buttered on the bottom; top with another piece of buttered bread. Cook, flipping halfway through, until the cheese has melted (about 7 minutes).
