Did you know that one in 13 kids has a food allergy? Whether someone in your own brood is an allergy sufferer or you’d just like to provide goodies for socially distanced trick-or-treaters this year (assuming your area is participating), here are 13 allergy-friendly Halloween candy options that everyone can enjoy. And to further help out kids with allergies, each year you can place a teal pumpkin outside your home to let families know that you’re also offering non-foodie treats (hellooo, fake vampire teeth). Because it’s the ghosts that are supposed to be scary on Halloween, not the candy.
