  • Teal Pumpkin Project Promoting Allergy Safe Treats On Halloween

"Chances are you're going to get a trick-or-treater with a food allergy, and as a mom with two children that live that daily life it's so nice, for on Halloween when we can go trick-or-treating, she has some other options", said Kirsten Sears of Food Allergy Families of NWFL.

If you've been Halloween shopping this year for candy, costumes or decor items, you most likely ran into the latest trend on the shelves: teal-colored pumpkins. FARE's mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is working to spread awareness of food allergies by encouraging families to leave a teal-colored pumpkin on their doorstep.

To let Trick or Treaters know you're handing out allergy-safe treats, simply buy or paint a teal pumpkin and put it on your front porch.

Yes. The Teal Pumpkin Project asks participants to keep the experience safe by putting food treats and non-food treats in separate bowls.

Also, the initial reaction during the Tokyo Game Show for the past couple of years has not been very encouraging, notes Comicbook. It's also one of the first major games Konami is releasing since it made a decision to focus other endeavors, like slot machines.

No one wants to end a night of trick-or-treating in the emergency room so for many years, as food allergies were on the rise, parents just couldn't let their children go door to door.

Last year, almost 18,000 homes participated in the project. This indicates to passersby that you have non-food treats available. This's the issue that the Teal Pumpkin Project aims to address. Use of the symbol is tied to the Teal Pumpkin Project. You can also display a free printable sign or premium poster from FARE. Additionally, try to choose latex-free items, as there are children who have latex allergies.

There are a few considerations when choosing which non-food items to hand out.

Chocolate is frightening if you're allergic to milk, and a candy bar with nuts can be deadly.

The teal pumpkin effort is meant to make Halloween more inclusive, and trick-or-treating a better experience for kids with a range of food allergies. "We saw it on FARE and thought that is such a good idea and participated but we didn't have any other people in the neighborhood and we just wanted to make it happen", says Aaron Hess.
