Several of you commented on the difficulty of managing the Halloween treats when your kid has a peanut allergy (or any other type of food sensitivity for that matter). Here's another place to look for good ideas: How to have an allergy-free Halloween at Sure Foods Living. This site was created by my friend, Alison St. Sure, who found herself with few sources of information or support when she discovered she had Celiac disease (gluten intolerance) several years ago. She created this fantastic site as a place for people to learn more about how to live with Celiac and other food sensitivities.
I'd love to keep this discussion going — I imagine every holiday poses a challenge food-wise when one's dealing with an allergy.
