Dealing With Gluten and Sugar on Halloween

I just wanted to share the list the Celiac Disease Foundation has put out for those looking for safe candies for Halloween. It’s a fun week for the kiddos and it’s important to protect those that are sensitive to gluten and other foods.

Also, Children’s Medical Center in Dallas came out with 4 ideas for limiting sugar on Halloween. Many kids are sensitive to refined sugar and need to limit their intake. I think these are some great ideas that I might consider for my own kids, especially with the candies they can’t eat (chocolate, etc).

Paleo Halloween Treats

Well, it’s the month of Halloween and you know what that means- candy and junk galore! This always present a challenge for me since my kids struggle with food allergies and sensitivities. They don’t eat a ton of sugar but I want them to be able to participate in all the trick-or-treating and Halloween parties. It’s certainly not fun when all your buddies get to dive in to their buckets of sweets and you can’t eat most of it. It’s literally taking candy from a baby. 😢

So, I ran across this book on Amazon.com this weekend. The Paleo Kid’s Halloween

I’m loving looking through the recipes and am determined to make some of these for my 2 boys to enjoy this Halloween. I want them to have just as much fun as their friends and not feel deprived or left out. I’ll be sharing the finished products with you once I make them. Pumped for trick-or-treating this year! P.S. – the e-book is FREE right now!! I got it for my Kindle. 😉
