For kids with allergies as well as their parents, Halloween can become less fun and more worrisome. How do you help your kid enjoy all the fun and avoid the "tricks" when you have zero to no control over what treats people are handing out on Halloween night? It's a scary thought.
That's why parents around the country are going teal - that is, painting pumpkins teal and placing them on their front porch to signify that they are offering non-food treats so all kids can join in the fun!
The Teal Pumpkin Project was started by Food Allergy Research And Education (FARE) and has taken off, with parents and kids posting pictures of themselves painting their pumpkins teal on social media and putting up flyers.
This is also a great option for health-conscious parents who want their kids to enjoy some not-so-sweet goodies on the spookiest night of the year.
Are you interested in participating this year but at a loss on where to start?

Candy is pretty sweet but once eaten, the fun is gone! Giving away items like bubbles, bracelets, and Halloween-themed treat like vampire fangs or spider rings will last longer than any piece of chocolate!
