Consider hosting a gluten-free Halloween party in the safety of your own home. Make a few batches of your favorite GF goodies, rent a movie and enjoy them together.
If you choose trick-or-treat, remind your little ones that
you must make sure their candy is safe before they can eat it. Once you
have gone through their candy, set aside the unsafe candy and donate it
to a good cause. Many local dentists have a buy back program that gives
your child $1 per pound then they donate the candy to soup kitchens and
troops overseas. Operation Gratitude and Operation Shoebox also have
great programs that put extra candy to good use.
If you have teens
or pre-teens, ask them if they are interested in selling you their
collected candy for cold hard cash. Most will jump at the opportunity.
