Show kids with food allergies the meaning of Halloween inclusion by placing a teal pumpkin at your doorstep or in a window. By doing this, you’ll be taking part in the Teal Pumpkin Project.
Teal is the official color of food allergy – and blue-green pumpkins, teal Halloween decorations and signage serve as visual cues. They’re like a beacon to food-allergic kids to show that you’re handing out food-free toys and trinkets.
In our Guide, Allergic Living first helps you with suggestions for teal decor. But then, what to give out?
Prep for a perfect Halloween with Allergic Living’s top picks for food-free loot. From haunting tattoos and squishy skeletons, to covetable collectors’ cards. These frightfully fun handouts will ensure trick-or-treaters with allergies won’t miss a thing.
The nonprofit FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) launched the Teal Pumpkin Project back in 2014. Like a giant pumpkin in a patch, it has grown bigger and bigger, with families around the globe now celebrating Halloween with creative food-free loot.
