Tips For Safely Celebrating The Holidays Around Children With Food Allergies

Food allergies are becoming more and more common among children in our world today. As a byproduct of our increasing reliance on pesticides and other chemical compounds, more individuals than ever are living with mild to severe food allergies that can be life threatening. For most big families, accommodating these food allergies is a natural part of the holiday process.

Just to be safe, here are some tips for keeping everything allergy-free:

1. Allergen-Free Foods

A great place to start is They have a long list of allergen-free recipes, with each major allergen identified in traditional holiday dishes. Additionally, consider vegan options for people with gluten and dairy allergies. If a child has a nut allergy, certain vegan dishes will also accommodate for them.

2. Communicate

Try and open up dialogue with everyone attending the Christmas celebration before they arrive. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to peruse different vegan and allergy-free recipes before the big day. The worst part of having allergies during the holiday season is having to take a backseat while everyone else enjoys the delicious treats and food at your fingertips.

3. Talk to Educators

Remember, the holidays are happening at school, too. Kids will be bringing in desserts filled with allergies multiple days before Christmas. If your child has a severe allergy, be sure to let the school know and recommend some vegan alternatives they can send around to parents in an email.

4. Vegan Alternative

If your child is stressed about providing a holiday dessert for friends and family, but doesn’t know how to accommodate for allergies, check out our different selection on No Whey Chocolate. All of our products were made with common food allergens in mind.
