Updated for 2021! Allergy-Friendly Easter Candy Guide

 

Here it is – your 2021 Easter candy list for food allergy-friendly sweets! If you are filling baskets for your loved ones with food allergies, use this list as a shopping guide.

We have put together a list of allergy-friendly candies for Easter and other special occasions. This information is for your convenience only. It is not an endorsement or a guarantee of the product’s safety. Always read ingredient labels. Contact the manufacturer, if needed, to confirm if the product is safe for you.



Avoiding Food Allergy Reactions

Even though Easter may still be a little different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing remains the same – read labels every time on any food you give your child. Ingredients can vary for many reasons, especially on different sizes and treats in holiday packaging.

Also, remember that a holiday or celebration is not the best day to try new foods.
