Shine a Teal Light on food allergies this Halloween

Here’s how teal pumpkins help kids with food allergies on Halloween

The pumpkins serve as a signal to children who want to participate in trick-or-treating, but suffer from a food allergy.

Affordable non-food items are available at dollar stores, party supply stores, or online shops, and low-priced items can be purchased and handed out to all trick-or-treaters, or made available in a separate bowl from candy if a resident chooses to hand out both options. On FARE's website, you can find ideas for non-food treats.

"Whether it's a lantern or whether it's a teal lightbulb on your front porch, kids with food allergies will know that your house has options for them that are not food related".

The statement continued, "Please keep her spirit alive by sharing her music and all the wonderful memories you have of her". Beverly came in fourth place, along with her coach, Christina Aguilera , on the inaugural season of The Voice in 2011.

It could be stickers, glow sticks or even toy vampire fangs. Their mission: "Raising awareness of food allergies and promoting inclusion of all trick or treaters throughout the Halloween season". Additionally, try to choose latex-free items, as there are children who have latex allergies.

According to the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) non-profit group, one in 13 children in the US has a food allergy.

Local officials are encouraging residents to participate in the "Teal Pumpkin Project" this Halloween. This will let the community know you're looking out for kids with allergies.
