Celebrating Easter Safely with Food Allergic Children

March 2009

Celebrating Easter with Food Allergies

The Easter holiday is typically full of traditions your family has enjoyed for many years. With a food allergic child, though, traditions once considered safe and fun may create potential allergy risks.

Alternative egg activitiesOne important thing to keep in mind is that young children aren't familiar with the traditions you grew up with as a child. So, instead of focusing on traditions that you think your child can't have due to his or her food allergies, think up some safe new traditions for your family to enjoy!

Instead of dyeing Easter eggs with an egg-allergic child, for instance, you can try decorating plastic, plaster or wood eggs from a craft store. Instead of filling an Easter basket with the traditional chocolate or eggs, you can fill a basket with safe toys, stickers, books, chalk or other non-edible items.

Old traditions can be hard to give up, but with a little imagination and flexibility, you can create new and safe holiday traditions for your entire family to enjoy.

Kids With Food Allergies has created an eight-page booklet filled with ideas and tips for celebrating Easter safely with your food allergic children.
