At Easy Sweets Baked Goods, our priority is to provide all those with food allergies (peanut, tree nut, sesame, dairy, and flax) the freedom to treat themselves to decadently delicious desserts with the confidence that they will not have an allergic reaction. Our space is completely allergy friendly and every ingredient is thoroughly scrutinized to make sure they have not been in contact with allergens from the time of production to the time of sale. We are so proud to be the family that makes everyone smile and that contributes to lasting memories.
Food allergies affect approximately 2.6 million Canadians, and the incidence is highest among young children with close to 6-8% affected by a food allergy. There is no cure (yet) – food avoidance is the only way to prevent an allergic reaction. Allergic reactions could be fatal. (foodallergycanada.ca)
Throughout the year, we participate in bringing awareness to food allergies. Every day new discoveries are being made to help those with food allergies and at the same time, every day another person is suffering. We are committed to spreading awareness of these allergies and participate in two major campaigns throughout the year.
The Teal Pumkin Project
Each year we support the Teal Pumpkin Project, a campaign organized by Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) to bring awareness of those living with food allergies. For the month of October we will bring awareness to this cause and to those who are unable to participate freely in the celebration of Halloween by transforming some of our most popular items to reflect the Teal Pumpkin Project theme colors. As our facilities are completely allergy friendly we are able to make up safe Halloween goodie bags to give out to trick-or-treaters, please contact us for details.
May – Allergy Awareness Month
May is allergy awareness month where we raise awareness of allergies and the challenges faced by those who live with them. Join us nationwide, as we recognize Food Allergy Awareness Week (May 12th – 18th). The week will be marked by the illumination of the CN Tower and the Toronto City Hall Towers, lead by the Turn It Teal program who is responsible for lighting up monuments at major sights throughout North America to bring awareness to food allergies.
