    Good effort. FYI your list is half way there. Try candies free of artificial colours / flavours / sweeteners, dairy, gluten, GMO (meaning at least: corn, soy, sugar & animal products) as well. Check out the NonGMO Project & Robyn O’Brien & Mamavation. Example links: “Happy Non-GMO Halloween!” (Oct/2012) | “The Great Pumpkin & A Healthy Halloween” (31Oct12) | “GMO Kitchen Cabinet Awareness Challenge”

    Hi, big Thank You, for raising awareness about kid’s allergies! I have two sons with peanut and tree nut allergies and Halloween brings SO much stress!
    I hand out “Earth’s Best” Lollipops. They don’t have any artificial flavors, they are gluten free too 😉

    Thanks for the links – very helpful! I will go check them out.

    Thanks for sharing the additional idea! They sound perfect.

    I was also going to say there are more and more of us avoiding artificial colors. Since we don’t have peanut allergies, this actually usually leaves us with chocolate candies, which often have or are processed on machinery with peanuts. So frustrating!

    My daughter is allergic to all nuts and skittles are processed on nut equipment and make her react. Great list–thanks for thinking of kids with allergies!

    Woah – that is really good to know Jess – thanks for telling us! Seems like we should take that one down and put in a dye-free, GMO-free alternative. I am on it!
