Teal Pumpkin Project Promoting Allergy Safe Treats On Halloween

Many Halloween sweets and snacks are processed in facilities that handle peanuts and nuts, making them off-limits.

"It is to raise awareness about kids with food allergies, and the difficulties they face", Whitney Whaley, owner of Whaley Canning Company, said. "We know that it's making a difference in so many lives and we are thrilled to grow this campaign on behalf of children who have food allergies, which are potentially life-threatening". Food Allergy Research & Education's first Facebook post about the Teal Pumpkin Project previous year, reached 2.7 million people in less than 72 hours, the organization reported.

A sense of communityFurther, the Teal Pumpkin Project also helps to build a sense of community. As a parent of a child with severe peanut allergies, I have to be constantly aware of what things he consumes or touches.

Marks hopes more people get involved with the Teal Pumpkin Project and help spread the word about food allergies.

Participating is simple too! They spend days collecting these pumpkins and painting them teal.

Place your teal pumpkin or sign in front of your home to indicate non-food treats are available. Many families across the country will have available both candy and non-food treats for trick-or-treaters. You can also display a free printable sign or premium poster from FARE. Use of the symbol is tied to the Teal Pumpkin Project. The treats handed out range from glow sticks and bouncy balls, to pencils, stickers, and plastic jewelry. First, some non-food items still contain food allergens, such as some brands of moldable clay, which may contain wheat.

Chocolate is frightening if you're allergic to milk, and a candy bar with nuts can be deadly. Sure - just do it safely! However, nowadays, kids, who suffer from food allergies, are being targeted for it. Tonya Winders, the CEO and the President of Allergy Asthma Network, stated that they need to make people understand that food allergies among children is a real issue and bullying kids with these allergies does exist. You can keep the experience safe by keeping your food treats and non-food treats in separate bowls.
