Having a food allergy often means being left out of parties, invites, and celebrations. For kids with a food allergy, Halloween can be downright scary and alienating.
Many Halloween treats contain the eight major allergens like milk in chocolate and peanuts in many candy bars. Let’s make this year’s Halloween celebration one where all kids can enjoy dressing up as their favorite ghost or goblin by pledging to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project!
The Teal Pumpkin Project “promotes safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies.” Kids with food allergies will know when they see a house with a teal pumpkin that there will be safe treats for them to enjoy such as Halloween stickers, pencils, notepads, glow sticks, bouncy balls and other non-food novelties. Join the worldwide Teal Pumpkin Project and keep Halloween safe, fun, and a positive experience for all to enjoy!

All kids should have the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of Halloween. Grab a can of spray pain and let’s turn the town teal!
