yes, this is at least a week late, but I wanted to show off the great treats everyone contributed.
from the top: piped chocolate webs & pumpkins decorated with dried fruits, pumpkin cupcakes with carrot juice coloured coconut oil frosting, home made Jell-O & cream gummy worms and gelatin & black cherry juice gummy worms.
the party was a hit, the kids had a great time, and I didn’t feel bad about the treat options available that K could eat. score!
multiple allergies, plus trying to heal “leaky gut” and reduce possibilities for problems down the road = very challenging at candy season. hard enough for us adults; try explaining to a 3 year old why she can’t have that cupcake, or those candies, or… and explaining to friends and family why it’s not “oh just a little treat, it won’t matter”.
what to do?
here are some stellar suggestions/recipes for families in similar situations – I’m so going to try some of these!
20somethingallergies’ a few really awesome non-candy sweet tooth alternatives
homemademommy’s three ingredient maple pecan candies (I’ll try with coconut oil & almonds)
and my personal favourite: glow sticks!

it was such a great composition (in such a casually off-hand manner), I had to photograph it.
