Trick-or-treating can be a dicey affair for kids with serious allergies who are unable to eat food items commonly found in popular candies — like milk, nuts, eggs, and soy. So the Food Allergy Research & Education group is raising awareness by making Halloween extra exciting for children with food allergies. The Teal Pumpkin Project, which launched in 2014, is designed to encourage inclusiveness on Halloween by highlighting houses that celebrate in allergy-friendly ways. The project encourages those who have "non-food treats" such as small toys, crayons, and stickers, to place a teal-painted pumpkin on their porch or stoop. This way parents will know where to go for safe, ghoulish goodies.
Bringing Life, Health & Hope to the 15 million American living with food allergies.
