Let's start the allergy whining posts now and get it out of the way before halloween. Please bitch here on how people should cater to your snowflake. How peanut products should be banned from earth. How your child will have a reaction from touching the candy because you couldn't properly go through it and find what your child could and could not have. How you can't teach your child to deal with having to give up half their candy due to allergies. Etc etc.


And before anyone tries saying I must not understand, my child is 5. He has food allergies. We've been doing this since birth with him. He knows what he can and can't eat. He's also special needs and this year he will trick or treat but he is not able to eat any candy. In fact he can't eat any food at all! He's strictly fed formula not even into his stomach but small intestine. But there will not be any accidental allergy issues or disappointment in our home. Why? Because we have taught our child to accept this part of his life and will do something in exchange for his candy.

some dentists in our area buy back the candy from trick or treaters, look into it and see if there is 1 in your area.

Lol, let's not! I get so sick of reading that mess. DD has peanut allergy & I have never expected people to cater to her. I only expected teachers to be extra careful when she was too young to know.

Thank you.  I'm sorry about your child. But I deeply admire your approach to his allergy.

Did you see in the movie "Mermaids" Mrs. Flax giving out sample tubes of toothpaste for trick or treat?  Love that woman.

Yeah I totally get that about teachers being careful when they are too young. And I'm the same way, we don't expect our sons school to change policies, family to give up beloved snacks, etc. He has to live in this world, better learn how now!

That was one of the ideas we discussed. We still may do it cuz we heard they send it to the troops! But we decided to go with the great pumpkin and leave the candy for the pumpkin and he will exchange it for a toy, which we decided to get him a new Wii game cuz he's been through a lot lately (hospital stays, er, tests).
