Trick-or-Treating

For the record, I don’t agree with not having our food-allergic kids trick-or-treat when all of their friends do. It’s one more chance for them to feel left out. My peanut-allergic son likes the opportunity to parade in his costume. We make it more about the pageantry than the candy. He asks for peanut-free candy and is lucky 50% of the time to find something that works. The times he can’t, he respectfully declines, but enjoys the experience nonetheless.

The choice is of course yours, but in a world where our food-allergic children will always face limitations, I like to strive for inclusion anywhere I can.
