The Teal Pumpkin Project
On the topic of halloween candy...be sure to check out the Teal Pumpkin Project. The Teal Pumpkin Project works to raise awareness of food allergies and promoting inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season.
The Teal Pumpkin Project™ promotes safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies. This nationwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option, and keeps Halloween a fun, positive experience for all!
So consider painting a pumpkin teal this Halloween and stocking up on non-food items to hand out. You don't have to completely avoid food treats—just have some of both (in separate bowls or buckets) to allow kids to choose. And you will be a real hero on that spooky night. Visit their website to support their project or add your household to the participation map.
