SPECIAL - Halloween

Trick or treat!

Be it imported Halloween or the more traditional Pão por Deus or Bolinho, in the celebrations of October 31st and November 1st, children receive sweets, bread, cakes, nuts... For children with food allergies it can be difficult to participate in these safe pranks.
It's important to include all children, so when choosing your Halloween treats, include safe, allergen-free options. And don't forget to keep them properly identified and separated from the rest to avoid cross-contamination.

For more ideas for a safer Halloween, check out the Teal Pumpkin Project created by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education). This is a worldwide movement to raise awareness of food allergies and create a safer and more inclusive Halloween for all children. You can read more about the project at .
