A Teal Halloween

With Halloween approaching you may see a few teal pumpkins around your neighborhood, stores, and schools. So why are people painting pumpkins teal? The answer is simple, The teal pumpkin project. The Teal Pumpkin lets people know that the house is offering non candy treats for children with food allergies.
As a food allergy mother I just want to make it clear that no one is trying to take candy out of trick or treating and no one is trying to ruin Halloween; in fact I love Halloween. The food allergy community is just trying to make sure all kids are included. In our house we offer both candy and non candy treat options.

some ideas of non candy treats are
Glow sticks
Spider rings
Vampire teeth
Mini notebooks
Noise makers
Spinning tops
Halloween tattoos
Finger puppets
Mini toy cars
Coloring sheets
Finger Paints

The best part about it is most of these things you can get at the dollar store or the dollar section of Target. This year I’ve seen food allergy awareness treat kits with a variety of non candy treats at many of the major stores ( Wal-Mart, Target, and Michael’s craft stores)

Please remember that 1 in 13 children have a food allergy but all want to be included. Let’s give all children a safe and happy Halloween this year! ğŸŽƒğŸŽƒğŸŽƒ
