Food Allergy Research Education's Teal Pumpkin Project offers a safe Halloween for trick-or-treaters with allergies.

"Halloween is pretty much centered around candy and one out of 13 kids in America have a food allergy".

This year, FARE sent Teal Pumpkin Project kits to 225 elementary schools in underserved neighborhoods, including to neighborhoods in San Diego, to drum up community engagement. As a parent of a child with severe peanut allergies, I have to be constantly aware of what things he consumes or touches.

Those treats can be off limits to children with food allergies.

Many sweets are not safe for kids with life-threatening food allergies.

"The Teal Pumpkin Project is an incredible way for kids with various food allergies to enjoy Halloween with less worry".


Place your teal pumpkin or sign in front of your home to indicate non-food treats are available. For example, consider a child with a peanut or tree nut allergy. FARE's mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments.

But, previous year it was a disappointing Halloween for Fritsch who developed food allergies.

There are a few considerations when choosing which non-food items to hand out.

It's also important to note that families who participate are not discouraged from offering candy to children without allergens.

The Knoxville Elks Lodge No. 160 made a decision to join the Teal Pumpkin Project at their trunk-or-treat this year.

If you don't want to purchase non-food items, it is helpful to separate allergy-free candy from candy that may trigger an allergic reaction if you're handing out goodies on October 31. 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. With one teal pumpkin on your porch, you can make this Halloween an inclusive one that is safe and fun for all children!
