Does anyone have any easter suggestions for a little one highly allergic to both egg and all nuts! I still want easter to be fun for him but I am really struggling with ideas to make this happen. Any ideas would really help me out! Thanks :)

  • Some shops do have nut and egg free egg alternatives – worth investigating these shops too.



  • Easter time presents do not have to be food based – books, toys and other treats are good for Easter.



  • Do they still sell Sugar Eggs? I can remember these from when I was a child (I decided not to eat chocolate for six months to prove to my father I could do it – it included Christmas and Easter)



  • I think toys and books as well. Thats a good idea!



  • There are a lot of allergy free products around now, coles sell a large range, But as a family we avoid the commercialisation of easter as much as possible, not for any religious reasons but simply not one person in our family really needs to consume huge amounts of chocolate etc, From when the children were old enough to understand money, and this is from about 2, we give a small easter bunny, so a token egg, and then some money in an envelope, the kids budget for this and look forward to getting the money, we actually give $50 per grandchild, which seems a lot but many people spend heaps more and we find that the parents make them put part in the bank for savings and the rest the kids spend on something that they want, the other thing is that as they get older I buy family blocks of chocolate which come out on special in the weeks leading up to easter and give these to them instead of the easter egg, that way they do get a larger amount of chocolate at a cheaper price, this has worked well for us and has been adopted by most of our family so all of the kids end up with a large kitty of money, which they can but something worthwhile with and they still get enough chocolate to satisfy them, we still have easter as a family and celebrate easter, but it is done as family and kid time not for the commercialization of large organisations.



  • I would try getting smaller pieces of allergy free chocolate and putting that into craft eggs. Little ones love colouring the eggs and making it pretty. After the paint dries, you could put in the chocolate or candy.



  • Either make some paper mâché eggs or you can buy plastic ones at some stores and fill with little toys. Make it more about the easter bunny and a treasure hunt then chocolate



  • A friend of mine always gave them something to wear their first piece of clothing for winter and some art and craft things for them to do on the long weekend as they too had a lot of allergies and couldn’t eat chocolate / nuts.



  • I wish I seen this post before..I’m funny giving my girls chocolate. I bought teddies and easter things instead.



  • My neighbour has two children who are both allergic to nuts and eggs. She made some Dried Fruit Truffle Balls (without alcohol), formed them into mini-egg shapes, and dipped them in chocolate for Easter treats for her kiddies. The kids loved them, and the adults thought they were pretty good too.



  • Toys, colouring books, from the health food shops you can get allergy friendly chocolate too!



  • I’d track done some ‘allergy’ safe choc and then use gifts with an easter theme. I always get my kids Schleich bunny figurines each easter.



  • I would get some non edible gifts instead



  • We have always been given new pyjamas from the Easter bunny and will continue this tradition with our own children



  • I would buy the plastic eggs that you can put a surprise inside. Fill it with a treat he likes and it doesn’t have to be edible. Buying a toy or something he has been wanting for a hile is what l usually did. My son has autism and was so fussy about his eggs. Now l just get him a block of Cadbury Dairy Milk and buy him a game or DVD. It’s OK to think outside the box.
