A share from Karen…

I thought I’d share.  Half our chocolate came from “nut free” factories that came from our Halloween “trick or treating”. 

The school had some “non food” activities for the kids.  I bought chocolate made on milk free lines for our daughter to trade for.  The medium size “made on milk free line” chocolate bar was almost four dollars.  We did not get any lifesavers (They have milk free lines) so I’ll buy some this week.  I bought Emma some chocolate cookies made in a nut, egg and dairy free factory.  She loves chocolate but it is so hard to find dairy free chocolate, even in Canada.

We have a peanut allergy in Emma’s class, half the parties Emma has gone to the host had “nut free” cupcakes.  Emma comes home usually with extra dollar store treats in her loot bag, when the others have “nut free chocolates”

Most Canadians “get nut free” and buy the nut bars for themselves who want them.  One parent at our school is on a fixed income, being a single parent.  She gets free bakery items from work, but does not send them to school because the bakery she works at deals with nut products.  Dare has an extensive line of nut free crackers and cookies and more that all do well in stores, their is still space on the shelf for the peanut  cookies on the shelf.  So most don’t see a problem.

Quacker Canada who makes the nut free bars also has gluten and wheat free products for celiac and wheat allergic, no dairy free list.

I wish all the major food companies would somehow \nhave to pick an allergy then be friendly toward that allergy.
