Today schools are more focused on nutrition, and due to this it can be hard to provide easy, allergy-free Halloween snacks.
At the start of the school year, we received a letter asking us to refrain from sending anything with nuts, gluten, dairy or kiwi due to other classmates various allergies.
Having a child on a gluten-dairy free diet, I’m sensitive to others’ dietary needs, but trying to accommodate a snack for 20+ kids at a school party can be challenging. (For a long time I was the mom who would raise her hand to supply napkins or paper plates.)
Last Halloween, I got to the sign-up sheet too late and was asked to bring in a snack. (Yep, totally missed that evite; some other parent signed up for paper products.)
Luckily, I found these ideas floating around Pinterest– pumpkin oranges! We used the Halo oranges which are perfect for kid-sized hands. Using a paring knife, I cut the rind in the shape of a jack-o’lantern.
I finished them with Halloween-themed bags from the dollar store.
Another easy idea is to use pre-packaged mandarin orange or diced peaches cups and simply use a Sharpie marker to draw a pumpkin design. I finished 20 of these in about 25 minutes.
Both are easy, allergy-free Halloween themed snacks that kids will love!
