Would it surprise you to know that A.J. is nine-years-old and he’s never had an Easter basket – until this year? One reason – his food allergies to nuts and egg make it hard to navigate. He grew out of his chocolate and soy allergies a few years ago – which offers a few more options for tasty Easter basket treats. This year I came up with three, themed Easter Baskets you can recreate for your child with food allergies. A few of them include safe and vegan snacks they can enjoy while having fun this Spring. Make sure you watch the video interview below with the CBS 46 morning team to talk about these creative baskets. Thank you to the brands and PR reps who submitted ideas for consideration in this story about Allergy-Safe Easter Basket Ideas.

Pixel Kids Computer Glasses for safe use with computer screens to block out blue light. The Pixel Eyewear website says, “The blue light emitted by screens reaches deeper into the eye and its cumulative effect can cause damage to the retina. Prolong exposure to blue light also causes symptoms of eyestrain, eye fatigue, migraines, and dry eyes.”
Allergy-safe snack idea: Rule Breaker cookies are gluten-free, nut-free and made primarily of chickpeas, made in a dedicated allergen-free bakery.
