Easter can be quite daunting when you have a child with food allergies. Here’s a few tips to help …

  • Give children non-chocolate gifts such as alternative sweets, marshmallows, jelly beans, etc
  • Treat children with non food gifts such as novelty pyjamas, Easter themed books, toys, lego, etc. Your child will now they have been thought of.
  • Easter egg hunt – your child doesn’t have to miss out. Allow your allergy child to collect the eggs, if they are at an age and maturity not to eat them. Swap their stash for allergy friendly treats. Your child still gets to enjoy the fun of the easter hunt without feeling excluded. An extra bonus is mum and dad get to enjoy their stash.
  • Create a treasure hunt – make the focus and fun on the hunt rather than the eggs. make up clues which eventually lead to the hidden treasure. Kids love the adventure so much more than you would think.
  • Buy hollow plastic eggs/containers from Spotlight or other craft shops and fill with allergy friendly treats, stickers, toys, stamps, etc.
  • Make up an Easter basket containing crafty things such as colouring books, crayons, pencils, paints, and other fun stuff that kids love. These will last longer and bring much more enjoyment than chocolate would. The added bonus is they aren’t being loaded up with sugar.
