An allergy friendly Halloween

Posted on: October 27, 2015


Last year at this time I posted about tree nut and peanut free candy for Halloween.

I wanted to do it again this year and share the most updated nut free candy list from

***UPDATE*** Please be sure to go to THIS PAGE where the Snack Safely list is. Please CAREFULLY READ the first page of the guide so you understand how it works. You will find the list of candy at the end of the guide.  Thank you!!

But this year I also wanted to share about the Teal Pumpkin Project.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is put on by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education). It is a national campaign to raise awareness about food allergies and promotes inclusion of all children for Halloween. Instead of handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, you hand out non food items instead (for example, items like glow sticks, bubbles, stickers, bracelets, etc.) and put a teal pumpkin in front of your house.

  Here’s how it works:

1)You go to FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project page on their website: HERE

2)You sign the pledge on their site to participate in the project.

3) You provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters and paint a pumpkin teal to place in front of your home, along with a free printable sign from FARE, to indicate you have non-food treats available (you can download the sign on the FARE website).

That’s it! Its super simple and easy and makes Halloween safer for children with food allergies.

If you have any questions at all about how the Teal Pumpkin Project works, be sure to check out the FARE website.

Below is the most up to date list of nut free (and egg free) candy from

I love that you created this list. It’s extremely helpful and I find that when people ask me what treats/packaged foods I can have, they want specific brands and names. I’ll be tweeting about this!

Thanks! I’m glad it’s helpful for you! Finding has been one of the best things for helping us deal with my son’s food allergies. Check it out. They have a list of all kinds of nut free and egg free foods, not just candy.

Thanks for the mention! That said, we’d appreciate if if you would please post a link to the Safe Snack Guide rather than copy and paste sections into your blog. It’s super important that the front page instructions and disclaimer always be included.

Of course! Thank you for bringing that to my attention! I went ahead and adjusted my post.
Thanks for all you do at Snack Safely! You make my life as an allergy mom so much easier!

This is a great list! Thanks for adding it to the link up 🙂

Thanks! I enjoy being part of the linkup!
