The Teal Pumpkin Project was the brainchild of the Food Allergy Research and Education Group and is now catching on through out the country, helping all kids to feel included on Halloween.

For parents with children that have food allergies Trick or Treating can be a tough experience. No parent wants to have to take away things that were handed out or have to walk away from what is being offered. These Teal pumpkins are  a beacon to families to let them know they are offering an alternative to candy.

This is a great alternative to fro some kids without allergies to maybe choose a sticker or small prize instead. A quick trip to a dollar store and you could really stock up. In this day and age with so many kids suffering from food allergies I think this is a fantastic idea. :)
