Health experts warn that nut allergy cases in children will surge during Halloween celebrations this year as the children will be exposed to chocolates and candy. Children who are allergic to nuts avoid taking anything that has these nuts in them but it is impossible to expect them to be careful during the Halloween trick or treat hunts which are mostly unsupervised.
