Happy Halloween!

Allergy parents understand what a stressful time Halloween is.  We still want our kids to dress up and do the whole trick-or-treating thing, but if you're anything like me, you're terrified of your kids eating any part of their loot.

If you're still unsure of your Halloween Day strategy, Mireille Schwartz, Founder and CEO of the Bay Area Allergy Advisory Board (BAAAB), has some creative ideas for safe trick-or-treating, which were featured Friday in  CNN and Yahoo News (check out Mireille's mention of us and our Food Allergy Rocks! event--tres cool).   

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos of your AllergyWise kids in response to last week's post to remind us what Halloween is all about.  It sounds like candy trade-ins are very popular this year: at dental offices for prizes, for Lego sets, and for homemade or store-bought safe sweets!  Moms (and dads!), you are amazing!

And now...our little cuties, all decked out!

As an added bonus for trading in their Halloween candy, have them bring their candy to Sunday's event, along with a new or gently used book, and trade it all in for a book from our Food Allergies Rock Halloween candy trade-in.  See you there!

Happy Halloween everyone!
