Trick-or-treating with Food Allergies

Clara Lerma, Corporate Manager of Wellness Advantage with Baptist Health South Florida, says for trick-or-treating with a kid that has food allergies, you need to have a plan. She recommends going online and finding neighborhoods that will close off the entire neighborhood, because it is safe. Natalie Castro, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, points out the Teal Pumpkin Project, which is a poster that you can put on your door, so families know your house is a safe zone and you are giving out candy items that are allergy free.
