Halloween Can Be Troublesome for Kids With Allergies

Halloween may be one of the highlights of the year for candy-loving kids, but for children with food allergies it can be extra scary. 

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology has this warning for parents dealing with food allergies. The group says candy often contains peanuts, tree nuts, milk and egg products- all of which can cause life-threatening reactions in children if they are allergic.  Since most of the small "fun size" treats do not list the ingredients, the Academy says to check the candy very carefully.
