It’s Halloween Time and That Means It’s Time for Sweets!

Parents everywhere are scrambling to buy costumes and candy for the Halloween weekend. This sure will be a fun year and I can only imagine the great costumes to be seen! This is difficult for any parent trying to navigate through a store full of other determined Halloween-driven families and when one has a child with Autism, this can be a melting pot for a meltdown!

Autistic children are very sensitive to change in their environments, and can easily become over stimulated inside a chain store and all of its customers.

Another important issue is CANDY! Not only because it makes the world-go-round on Halloween Day, but because for those families on a Gluten Free Casein Free (GFCF) diet, the candy must be free of gluten and casein.

Don’t worry, there’s plenty of GFCF candy out there and these are just a few of the most popular Halloween candies that you will most likely receive on your trick or treating outing.

-Dubble Bubble Original Bubble Gum
-Jelly Belly Beans
-Charms Lollipops
-Jolly Ranchers Hard Candy
-Haribo Gummy Bears

Don’t forget to visit the following website for a very detailed list of sweets and treats suitable for any GFCF dieter.
