Halloween Can Be Safe With These Nut-Free Candies

Halloween can be treacherous for a child with a peanut allergy and a parent who is trying to stay alert.

If your child is severely allergic, some kind of trade-off system would be a good alternative. After trick-or-treating, trade your child’s collected candy for safe-to-eat candies (or fruit!).
