Teal pumpkins offer a safe Halloween for children with food allergies

Teal Pumpkin Project Promoting Allergy Safe Treats On Halloween

After finding out their kids have severe food allergies they realized that most homes did not have a safe treat for their kids. Teal is the color used for food allergy awareness. "Candy that's safe other times of the year might not be safe during Halloween".

"Halloween is pretty much centered around candy and one out of 13 kids in America have a food allergy". The pumpkin symbolized that homeowners have non-food goodies for kids with any kind of food allergy. "Many popular sweets include the common food allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, soy, eggs, milk, or wheat, and besides that, the small sized sweets often given out during Halloween do not usually have ingredients on them and, there is too much of a risk for children with food allergies to eat that candy without knowing what's in it".

Launched in 2014, the Teal Pumpkin Project aims to "raise awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season", according to the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) group. With food allergies on the rise in our youth today, it's a wonder that we still celebrate Halloween the same way we have for decades. These markers notify trick-or-treaters that the house offers non-food treats like glow sticks, beaded necklaces, Halloween rings, crayons, or vampire fangs - small gifts that all children can enjoy, regardless of their allergies.

Place your teal pumpkin or sign in front of your home to indicate non-food treats are available. "There's some little treats or toys I can have that are non-food because with allergies you can't just have random candy", Hess said.

Interestingly enough, this effort to protect children from life-threatening allergies could be the change needed to target other life-threatening health conditions affecting children today. With one teal pumpkin on your porch, you can make this Halloween an inclusive one that is safe and fun for all children!
