Easter Ideas - Allergy Today

Managing Easter Madness
You can purchase this past issue from here

Easter can be a bit of a challenge if you are dealing with food allergies, but being prepared means no one misses out.

Easter egg alternative
Buy plastic eggs from your local craft shop and have your children decorate them with stickers, felt pens, glitter and any other crafty things that take their fancy. 

Put them out on the table for the Easter bunny to fill with safe treats, little toys – try the $2 shop – or money and then hide them.

Make your own chocolate
