With the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Easter will be different this year. It may not be full of the same activities, but you can find ways to celebrate even if you are under a stay-at-home order. And you can still create an Easter basket with allergy-friendly mail-order treats and non-food treats.
Avoiding Food Allergy Reactions
Even though this year may be different, 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 to wait to try new foods. Save new foods and brands for another time, perhaps after the coronavirus pandemic has passed.
