(VIDEO) Allergy-Safe Easter Basket Ideas Your Children Will Love

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.

Fun, Allergy-Safe Easter Basket Ideas

Movie-Lover Easter Basket Idea

When new summer movies hit the screen, we love to go check them out. Lazy summer days are the perfect time to pop in a DVD or stream an 80’s movie on your favorite device. With these ideas, your child with allergies will be ready for all the new and old movies they’ll love.

PBS Streaming Device: No subscriptions necessary to stream PBS shows on any device with an HDMI input.

Captain Marvel Doll: She rocked the box office this Spring. Carry her along with the action figures.

Star Wars Action Figures: The saga continues with brand new characters and throwbacks to the original ones who captivated our hearts.

Allergen-safe snack idea: Safe & Fair nut-free and gluten-free granola or chips; Pig-out Chips are infused with smoky bacon flavor without any of the animal products. They’re vegan, low sodium.

STEM Easter Basket Idea

With the growing interest in Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM), Easter is a wonderful time to re-energize your little one’s interest.

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.
