pHi, Every year sense we found out about my PA sons allergy we have chosen to go to our churches harvest festible. It is like a carnival with lots of games and prizes(little toys)and everyonfe dresses up.At the end of the evening they hand out a bag of candy to each child. We ask ahead of time for 2 PN free bags.(this way no PN are going in to our home and the boys don't know we have asked for something special) I always double check everything before I give it to the kids. What a blessing to have a family evening of fun. With no hurt feeling afterwards. God Bless /p

pHi everyone! I've been away for awhile. This will be my daughter's first year trick or treating, too. (She is going to be Tinkerbell! Yes, I'm excited, too! LOL) These are all great ideas. It seems I recall something from Vermont Nut Free? Didn't they have special baskets you could get for Halloween and the holidays last year? Just wondering...Shan [img]http://client.ibboards.com/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]/p

pOh, you reminded me, Shan, to put in a plug for Vermont Nut Free Chocolates for Halloween. I am definitely ordering chocolates from them to replace *all* the chocolate candies which get tossed each year./p

pThanks everyone for the ideas. I have been stressing out about Halloween as Spencer and Madison are now 2 and 3 and they attend preschool and understand what Halloween is all about. All of the ideas are great and I am feeling much more relaxed!/p
pThanks again!br /

pHi! I just got in the mail Vermont Nut Free's Halloween flyer. I will be ordering some this Halloween and hopefully they will have goodies for Christmas, too even though my little girl doesn't really eat chocolate yet(I've been too scared to give her any, too.). But, it will be great for the family. Chris, does peanutallergy.com benefit any if we order thru your site? Just wondering. Shan [img]http://client.ibboards.com/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]/p

pYes Shan,/p
pVermont NutFree has a child with peanut allergy and they send a portion of the sale to help support PeanutAllergy.Com.br /
Be sure to tell them that you came from PeanutAllergy.Com, this is how they track it. They even have a box on their order form (I believe it was this form) to click on, to let them know how you heard about them etc. and you can click on PeanutAllergy.Com to let them know. Thanks for asking. /p
pWe will also be adding many affiliate programs soon so other products you normally buy, if you buy them through PeanutAllergy.Com will help raise money as well. We hope everyone will start supporting the work we do and what we are trying to create. Now through purchases, you will be able to help support PeanutAllergy.Com. We will try to cover most things that people purchase. To see more about this affiliate program you can click on this link (we will be adding much more to this part of the site soon). Be sure to tell all your family and friends to make their purchases on PeanutAllergy.Com as well!br /

pHi everyone./p
pI wondered if there is a list of "safe candy" for a PA and egg allergic child? I know that the Vermont choc. co. has safe candy, but wanted to know what you all consider safe other than that product. I have heard through my local support group in NH that Skittles are ok...any thoughts???/p

pGreat suggestions - here's my two cents worth. We are ordering special Halloween stickers and erasers from the Oriental Trading Company for less $$ than we would spend on candy. Several parents in the neighborhood are joining us in providing candy-free houses as a respite for children with all types of food allergies and related illnesses (such as diabetes). How nice it is to be able to give children with restricted diets a treat they will be able to keep!/p
pAs for our daughter, we will be practicing the "Great Pumpkin Switch" at two she won't notice! We also love the idea of having older children trade in treats for a larger toy. A great suggestion not only for PA children but those concerned about post-Halloween dental bills!/p
