Teal Pumpkins Mark Houses With No Food Allergens for Treat-or-Treaters

Those who know what this non-traditionally colored pumpkin means will know that it is safe for their kids with allergies to trick-or-treat at that home. Paint a real pumpkin teal, using acrylic or spray paint or, purchase a teal pumpkin from a local retailer or online. 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.

They passed out 100 flyers about the teal pumping project to help raise awareness before Halloween.

"I've been involved with this organization since I was diagnosed with a peanut allergy when I was four", she said.

There are a few sweets considered "safe", but people participating in the project usually hand out non-food items. The Teal Pumpkin Project has made it possible for trick-or-treaters with allergies to know which households they can safely visit.

This year, FARE sent Teal Pumpkin Project kits to 225 elementary schools in underserved neighborhoods, including to neighborhoods in San Diego, to drum up community engagement. This's the issue that the Teal Pumpkin Project aims to address. You can also download a free sign from the FARE website and post it on your front door.

Ideas for non-food treats are glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces, pencils, pens, crayons or markers, bubbles, Halloween erasers or pencil toppers, mini Slinkies, whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers, bouncy balls, finger puppets or novelty toys, coins, spider rings, vampire fangs, mini notepads, playing cards, bookmarks, stickers and stencils. Some families choose to offer only non-food items for every child while others offer both options.

It's also important to note that families who participate are not discouraged from offering candy to children without allergens.

Can you still pass out candy?

While you may not know which kids have food allergies, there is a way to offer safe treats for all to enjoy. You can keep the experience safe by keeping your food treats and non-food treats in separate bowls.

Allergies can make Halloween a tough time for kids who are lactose intolerant or allergic to nuts.
