This New Halloween Decoration Can Make the Holiday Safer for Millions of Children

You probably know someone with a food allergy. Nowadays, awareness about dietary restrictions are at an all-time high, even when you factor out the people who self-diagnose an allergy. Food allergies are hard enough as it is, but they’re even harder to deal with around holidays.

Now imagine being a child with food allergies around a holiday season. At Halloween time, many kids can’t eat treats they collect while Trick or Treating. Well, as an alternative, Food Allergy and Research Education has introduced the Teal Pumpkin Project.

Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) started the campaign in 2014 after a food allergy group in Tennessee ran a similar activity. The goal is to inclusion for all children during Halloween, not just the kids who can eat traditional treats.

The teal pumpkin indicates you have non-food items to give as treats. Simply place a teal pumpkin outside your house and set up one of FARE’s free printable signs explaining the campaign.

With YOUR help, we reached more than 10 million people with the Teal Pumpkin Project this year!
