Allergy Friendly Halloween
There are many different ways to keep Halloween safe for you and your family. If you have children going trick or treating, there seems to be an endless list of safety tips. Even if you aren't going trick or treating, you can help keep Halloween safe.

You can ask children, or their parents if they have any allergies, and if they do, give them a safe option for their needs.
