For most kids, Halloween is one of the best nights of the year, but for kids who suffer from allergies, Halloween is just a reminder of all the treats you can't have.
Many traditional Halloween treats aren’t safe for children with life-threatening food allergies. Which is why The Teal Pumpkin Project has been working to offer an alternative.
Here's How You Can Participate:
1. Paint Your Pumpkin A Bright Teal Color And Put It On Your Doorstep
2. Provide Non-Food Treats For Trick-Or-Treaters!
This includes: Glow sticks, bubbles, temporary tattoos, stickers, playing cards, super balls, coloring books, Play Doh, Noise makers etc...
3. Download A Free Poster On The FARE Website And Put It In Your Window To Let Other Parents Know You Have Non-Food Treats
4. If You Do Decide to Hand Out Treats, Try To Provide Allergen-Free Treats
Treats should be nut, gluten, dairy and egg free.
