The Great Easter Egg Hunt

Easter is always a tricky time for those suffering from food allergies, but there are some great options out there if you know where to look.  The selection for those who are dairy-free has improved and increased over the past 5 years and several of the leading supermarket chains now stock some of these alongside their “normal” counterparts.  My findings and recommendations for future Easters (as it’s probably a little late for this year now!) include:

  • Price: £9.50+
  • Available from:  John Lewis; Chococo
  • Also available as Ginger, Honeycombe

NB – these are not guaranteed dairy-free as they are produced in a factory that also handles dairy chocolate, but a good alternative if you’re able to manage the risk

 

As always when it comes to M, our challenge for Easter is a little trickier.  Not only do we have to seek out a dairy- and soya-free option, but, due to his hypersensitivity, we also have to avoid any chocolate alternative that contains soya lecithin.  This isn’t an easy find, but I have discovered these few that are suitable, fun and delicious too:

In years past, we have also opted not to buy Easter Eggs of any description, instead choosing small gifts such as books, crafts and even gardening equipment one year.  Whatever your choice, I hope you find your “perfect” egg and enjoy a marvellous Easter!
