While many children enjoy going door to door for treats October 31st, some children are disappointed door after door.
Teal Pumpkin ProjectIf you have a child with food allergies, trick-or-treating disappointment is something you understand very well.
What is the Teal Pumpkin Project About?Every child should be able to experience the joy and tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. But kids with food allergies are often left out of the fun, since most candy is off limits. The Food Allergy Research and Education organization aka FARE promotes the Teal Pumpkin Project to help make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy.
Last year, households from 14 countries participated. This is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all trick-or-treaters.
