Really? But allergy parents want their kids treated like everyone else and not special?

who is excluding the allergy kids from Halloween? Not us.  If the kid can't eat a peanut butter candy, can I suggest the parents take it out of their bag>

I think its a great idea, parents know when coming up to a house if the treats would be something thier kid can have.

I wonder how all the kids up until NOW have managed to survive Halloween.  Because I don't recall scads of unconscious kids littering the streets in days of yore.

Now, they don't want people giving out candy so the allergy kids feel included in Halloween.  Again, who is excluding them from it?

Seriously. Every other kid should not be deprived of peanut butter cups, the best thing in the whole bag, because some kids can't have peanuts. Their parents can pick out the peanut butter cups.

I'm as serious as I can be.

Or....the parents could let the kids go trick and treating, not a big deal out of it and check the candy for giving it to their kids.  Like responsible parents do.

I agree.  They always say they don't want their kid treated special then this comes out?

I'm giving out Reeses PB cups for Halloween.  The allergy kids and their entitled parents will just have to get over it.

I agree but then again, why should they have to do that! We need to cater to them!
