It is that time of year again. For kids, it is a time to dress up as someone else and reap the benefits of trick or treat. For food allergic parents, it is a time to plan for a safe yet fun Halloween to ensure that our children enjoy the holiday without feeling left out.
Thanks to Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta, the 2011 allergy friendly halloween trunk or treat will help ensure that kids with food allergies have a ball at Halloween.
Halloween, like many holidays, can be a parent’s worst nightmare when it comes to protecting their children with food allergies. The Atlanta nonprofit Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta has teamed up with Sandy Springs Fire Rescue to provide a safe and fun atmosphere for food allergic kids to celebrate Halloween. What a great idea!
Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta and the department will offer children games, prizes and crafts, as well as a chance to meet firefighters and see the fire trucks.
The party runs from 2 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 23 at Fire Station #2, 135 Johnson Ferry Road. Organizers ask that no food be brought to the party, noting all children will receive a non-food treat bag.
To register, email with the number of children attending to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 404-512-7983. There are a limited number of spaces, so be sure to get your reservation – the deadline is October 15.
