Allergy Safe Treats and Tips for Valentine’s Day

Allergy-Friendly Candy

While it’s still not on the list of federally recognized holidays, Valentine’s Day remains extremely popular. Celebrated as the traditional day of love, many people go to great lengths to show their love for a special someone in their life. But for those who are looking to flatter and impress someone with food allergies, this can be easier said than done. Fortunately, allergy-friendly options, such as sending cookies as a gift, are available to help avoid any reaction that could spoil your special Valentine’s Day plans. Check out these helpful food allergy tips that will help you melt their heart without dealing with allergic issues.

#1 Look for Allergy-Friendly Candy, Sweets, and Chocolates

When it comes to choosing the right candies, the ingredients label should be the first place you go. Thankfully the rule here is straightforward, as the vast majority of prepackaged treats have clear labels advising to what they are made of. Avoid candies and chocolates that are unlabeled.

#2 Plan Your Romantic Dinner Well in Advance

When planning a romantic dinner, being proactive is definitely the way to go. If you have a special restaurant in mind, check their website and menu in advance or call ahead and ask what accommodations they make for food allergies. If you plan to have a romantic meal at home, make sure to find out about any food allergies beforehand.

#3 If You Have Food-Based Allergies, Take an Epi-Pen with You

On the other hand, if you are the one with food-based allergies, make sure to carry your Epi-pen with you just in case. As the old saying goes, “Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.”

#4 Avoid Consuming Problematic Foods Before Kissing

As crazy as it sounds, it’s a good idea to be aware of and discuss what you recently had to eat before any expressions of passion that involve the lips, food allergies can be triggered by the slightest exposure.

Don’t let food allergies break your heart this Valentine’s Day. Make sure to talk with your Valentine sweetheart to avoid spoiling this special day.
