Last year Christmas was hard, it should be an enjoyable time of year but it can be difficult to fully enjoy it when you have allergies. I didn’t know about free from advent calendars and Christmas treats. I had cut out dairy due to Ava reacting to it when I was feeding her. I then went on to have to cut out soya too. I couldn’t have my advent calendar or any chocolate treats and when we stayed at James’ Mums house her bowl full of chocolates tormented me!
In the last year I have learnt a lot about allergy friendly foods and also discovered many products, companies and places to look to source alternatives. I wish I had know last year about the chocolate I could have had. I have put together a list of some free from advent calendars so that if you or a child of yours has allergies you won’t need to feel left out.
I’m also going to do a post on allergy friendly selection boxes and treats with a competition allowing you a chance to win some. If you don’t want to miss the post make sure you sign up by entering your email in the box on the right.
