Mega Allergy Friendly Giveaway!
This Mega Allergy Friendly Giveaway is pretty much the most exciting thing to hit project:allergy kids! I’m not really one to do things by half, so if I am going to organise a giveaway, I’m going to make it epic, and of course, it has to suit allergy families. Of course, no guarantee everything is going to suit everybody, but I’ve tried really hard to choose things free from the common guilty culprits, as well as items for parents and items for children. I’m sure it goes without saying, but please do check labels and websites, and make an informed decision about whether it is ok for your family…and pass it on to somebody if it doesn’t 🙂 I’d like to say a massive thank you to the very generous businesses who gave so generously for this mega allergy friendly giveaway! If you do end up winning something, I’m sure they’d really appreciate your feedback on the products. I’ve started loading all the things up for grabs below, some things will still be added as they arrive and others may be shifted around a bit when I get the delivery….but I’m sure you will agree, there is a lot to be excited about! SO how does it work? How can you win…I know that’s what you want to know! On Monday (21 March), I will load the actually competition entrance on here….all you need to do is come back then or any day next week and enter! Then you need to go back to the Facebook post and tell me 2 things: where win NZ you are from and what product(s) you would most like to win! I will be drawing a major prize and 2-3 smaller prizes to share some of the love around. Whoop! And of course, please share the love around by spreading the word!

Baking for a few weeks sorted thanks to Kea Cookies! I’ve got an entire tub of chocolate chip cookies, and a box each of Gingernut and Hokey Pokey biscuits. My 8 year old is not happy about me giving the ginger nuts away as she just loves these since trying them at the Gluten Free and Allergy show last year!
An awesome prize for the kids! Big thanks to Ecomonkey for 3 beautiful packs of allergy friendly gifts: one bag of bath soaks, one bag of kneado powder and one ‘everything paint’ pack 🙂
Mother Nature’s have given us a great range of yummy products, including Roast Broadbeans, Sea salt and balsamic vinegar Crunchy Roasted Fava Beans and Golden Roasted Chickpeas! My daughter also really loves these products 🙂
And because I know allergy families need to take food with them EVERYWHERE, I have organised Kai Carrier to add 5 of their amazing reusable food pouches to our massive haul…thanks so much Kai Carrier 🙂
A topic that comes up a lot in allergy forums is what washing powder to use when you have children with allergies….especially when eczema is an issue as well. These soap nuts by Soap Nuts NZ are a favourite of mine, I’ve been using them for a long time now as my middle daughter has severe eczema. They work really well and don’t have all the nasties in that washing powder does. Soap Nuts NZ have kindly donated a 250g box of soap nuts to the prize pool 🙂
Another big thanks to Friction Foods for 3 packs of corn bites in natural, salt and pepper, and garlic and onion flavours and a pack of plain rice bites. We had the chance to try these a few days ago, and they were very popular with the kids!
We’ve also got 5 Healthy Food Guide magazines to give away…I’ve been getting this magazine for years thanks to some kind family members gifting a subscription to me every year, and I love it! I find there are lots of recipes and articles suited to those with allergies 🙂
Another one I definitely want to keep for myself! (not going to obviously haha): a $30 voucher from Delmaine Fine Foods so you can choose what suits your family best! Very cool 🙂
And because I know we all need to take safe food with us, especially to birthday parties, BBQ’s etc, I chose this beautiful Wean Green Garden Pack. Big thanks to The Sleep Store for this thoughtful gift.
We’ve also got something else to help with dinner! 2 bottles of yummy sauce from get real food! A tomato sauce and BBQ sauce that are refined sugar and preservative free and instead sweetened with apple juice and dates. Awesome work 🙂
