Allergy Safe Easter

Easter is upon us, and while this holiday is often a fun and family-friendly holiday, for those with allergies, Easter can be a scary time. While we typically don’t associate anything scary with Easter, a fun-filled holiday can quickly turn into a living nightmare for a person with life-threatening allergies. Unfortunately, if not careful, the Easter holiday can be full of danger for allergy sufferers. So if you are going to have someone over for the holidays with allergies (severe or non-life-threatening), proper precautions need to be taken so you can ensure an allergy safe Easter for all involved.

An allergy attack can vary depending on the person and the allergen involved. Nonetheless, proper precautions need to be taken to help ensure an allergy safe Easter. Check out these helpful tips that can help you minimize the chances of an allergy attack for you and your guests.

• Typically, a person with an egg allergy can touch the shell of an egg, as long as it is not broken. However, if you rather play it safe, there are ways to partake in coloring eggs. Decorating eggs made of plastic or wood can be just as fun. Just make sure you use natural dyes for the eggs in case someone has a sensitivity to particular dyes. Markers and stickers are also a wonderful way to decorate Easter eggs.

• If you are making an Easter basket for someone with allergies, make sure you pay close attention to the labels if you plan on including food items. Luckily, nowadays, there are plenty of allergy-free snacks and candy options available to fill an Easter basket with or to include in plastic eggs. Filling a basket or plastic eggs with non-food items such as toys, stickers, books, and sporting goods is also usually a hit.

• If you own a pet, be sure to find out if anyone has an allergy to animals. In many cases, dander and saliva from an animal can set off someone’s allergies, so make sure you thoroughly clean the area where you plan on hosting your Easter celebration to help reduce the potentiality of an allergy attack. Also, while many of your guests may love your furry family member, if there’s someone in attendance that is allergic, keep your pet(s) in a separate room to help reduce the chances of an allergy attack.
