These ten allergy free goodies make popular hand outs for all the trick-or-treaters. This thoughtful act can make a child’s Halloween much more special.

There is nothing more fun than handing out Halloween candy to all the little princesses, robots, and witches who show up on your doorstep. For kids with allergies, a treat basket full of things they can’t eat is a disappointing find. If you like to be the door on the block that all the kids look forward to knocking on, include treats that will bring a smile to everyone’s face. These ten allergy free goodies make popular hand outs for all the trick-or-treaters.

1. Rice Krispie Treats
These are favorite among kids of all ages. The marshmallow goo combined with the crunchy puffed rice makes it the perfect sticky sweet Halloween treat. Annie’s Organic makes a delicious gluten free pre-packaged rice krispy.

2. Gummy Candy
Gummy candies of all sorts are slimy, chewy Halloween staples. Gummy fish, worms, bears and rings all fit the bill for a sweet allergy friendly treat. They are readily available in the seasonal Halloween section of any supermarket already divided into little packs and ready to go home with trick-or-treaters.

3. Magic Tricks
Some children like to mix up their treat bag with non candy options, especially kids with severe food allergies. Halloween is a magical night for kids, so why not give them little magic tricks so they can create their own magic?

4. Twizzlers
This chewy, fruity rope candy is not just for the movies. It makes a great allergy free alternative for kids with food sensitivities. You can pick up these treats in a range of delicious flavors to suit all tastes.

5. Goldfish Crackers
Sometimes a savory snack is a nice change from all the sweets. Goldfish crackers are a kid approved favorite. They are crunchy, cheesy and free from nuts.

6. Temporary Tattoos
Temporary tattoos are a fun treat to hand out to kids. You can buy them in large sheets and cut them up or buy individually packaged tattoos. All kids love temporary tattoos, so make sure to have plenty on hand.

7. Sidewalk Chalk
Hand out a treat that has no allergens and lets kids express their creative side. Sidewalk chalk is easy to find, inexpensive and will be entertaining for children long after the last piece of candy has been eaten.

8. Pureed Fruit Pouches
All the kids know the house that gives out packs of baby carrots and whole fruit, and avoid those healthy homes like the plague. You can give kids the option of pure fruit, while still keeping the treat tasty and sweet. Packages of squeezable pureed fruit don’t taste healthy, but provide a allergy friendly flavor infusion of vitamins and minerals.

9. Popcorn
Popcorn can be a trick or treat snack that is savory, sweet or salty. It is a healthy, nut and gluten free treat that is fun to eat.

10. Lollipops
Lollipops are a candy classic that have somehow gone out of style in favor of fancier chocolate candies. All types of suckers are allergy friendly, and kids love a candy that they can slowly savor.

If you want to make it easier for the kids with allergies, and their parents, have two bowls available with an allergy free label on one. Just this little thoughtful act can make a child’s Halloween night so much more special.

  1. This is a great list! Often times we forget about having Halloween treats on hand for children with allergies. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. I love these so much. I’ve always thought that Halloween must be such a drag for kids with food allergies. This is going to make some happy kids in my neighborhood!

  3. What a great list! We don’t have allergies so we stuff our faces with chocolate and candy bars, but I like that there are options for those who need it.

  4. There are so many different things you can do for Halloween treats now. Doesn’t have to be the traditional candy anymore. Halloween isn’t our thing now that the kids are all grown and gone and we live in the country so don’t get trick or treaters. Great options provided.

  5. This is a great list. I would never have thought about including sidewalk chalk or tattoos. I think it would be fun for the kids to have an option. Plus this way no one will feel left out.

  6. My kids would like most of these. They are popcorn and goldfish fans for sure! I will have to keep these in mind.

  29. Gummy candies, Lollipops and popcorns will definitely be part of our Halloween treats. Good to see another set of ideas here. Thanks!

  30. We always get the mix bag of stuff. People can take whatever they want, then. UGH on the temporary tattoo suggestion though, hahaha….so many of them just end up in the trash, ha.

  31. You have some awesome ideas I never thought of – like magic tricks and tattoos! I am going to pin this!

  32. That’s a great list. I remember getting homemade caramel apples when I was a kid and trick or treating.i like the non food items.

  33. Rice Krispies are really tricky. The most popular brand is not gluten-free, so we just avoid them in general.
