Teal Pumpkin Project makes Halloween safe for children with food allergies

Project promotes safe trick-or-treating for children suffering from food allergies

"Trick-or-treating isn't fun without candy, but if you can have something that's fun....pencils or temporary tattoos, glitz sticks and whistles...it's a good substitute", they said. "And what that indicates is that you have non-food treats available for children".

"It's fantastic since he can't eat a lot of the treats out there, he at least gets something while he trick or treats", she said.

Since the project sprouted in 2014, places like United Market Street are promoting the importance of the teal pumpkin.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is helping to make Trick-Or-Treating safe and fun for everyone.

Lauren Miller, a parent of a child with allergies, said Halloween used to be her worst nightmare due to what was placed in her son's bag.

At West Ridge Church, they're having a Trunk or Treat on Halloween with more than one allergy-free option for kids.

To participate, you can either spray-paint a real pumpkin or download a teal pumpkin poster online, said Casandra Whiteside, the London mom who's bringing the mermaid-hued gourds to Middlesex County.

"These children can also enjoy Halloween more, instead of fearing it or dreading it at this time of year".
