Celebrating Easter and Passover with Food Allergies
We're sending this special Easter and Passover issue to you early so it will be helpful as you plan your holidays, and give you plenty of time to mail order safe Easter candy if you choose to do so.
Last year, the companies that sold milk-free, nut-free chocolate Easter bunnies ran out early and stopped taking orders. So if you do plan to purchase safe Easter bunnies, some allergy-friendly companies that offer them are included in this issue along with other resources to help make your Easter or Passover safe and fun for your entire family.
