Forget the tricks, just bring the treats!
Trick or treat, smell my feet
give me something good to eat

Ahh, the favorite Halloween song that will be recited by children everywhere within the next few weeks. It’s the time of year dentists love and parents hate. Beyond worrying about the all the excess sugar, parents also have to think about allergens in the treats their kiddos proudly gather throughout the haunting season. We all know someone with a food allergy, who has to deal with constant checking of ingredients and making sure items are safe. Don’t let their struggles haunt you or your child.
