Halloween can be a challenging holiday for families with food allergies. Allowing Little Ones to enjoy the experience without fear of an allergic reaction often keeps families from participating. As a solution, FARE (Food Allergy Research Education) is encouraging families to start a new tradition, the Teal Pumpkin Project, that will make Halloween less scary for children with food allergies.
This campaign encourages people to raise awareness of food allergies by providing non-food treats for trick-or-treaters and painting a pumpkin teal - the color of food allergy awareness - to place in front of their house along with a free printable sign from FARE to indicate they have non-food treats available.
The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all.

Have a happy and safe food allergy-free Halloween!
