Allergen Safe Halloween Treats


Posted 10.20.11 | Christine Graham-Garo

One concern I hear from a number of families who have  children with food allergies is exactly what food brands are their children allowed to have.  So as Halloween gets closer, we wanted to provide a list of common brands of common Halloween treats and the allergens they are free from.  

FYI: when “nuts” are listed, coconut is not included in that classification
