Teal Pumpkin Project offers safe Halloween for children with allergies

For children with food allergies, Halloween can be a tricky holiday, but the Teal Pumpkin Project aims to make the holiday safer and easier to navigate.

For millions of children with food allergies and their parents, the Halloween trick-or-treating tradition can sometimes be fraught with anxiety because many candies that are handed out contain major food allergens such as milk, peanuts, tree nuts and wheat.

FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project promotes safety and inclusion for all trick-or-treaters by encouraging people to provide non-food treats on Halloween. A pumpkin painted teal, the color for food allergy awareness, signals that children will find a fun, non-food treat that anyone can enjoy.

Join FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project to help create a safer, happier Halloween for all.
