Teal Pumpkin Project Promoting Allergy Safe Treats On Halloween

The pumpkin symbolized that homeowners have non-food goodies for kids with any kind of food allergy. Is it a big enough issue to warrant a change in holiday traditions?

A 2007 study by the CDC explains this rise in food allergies.

Place your teal pumpkin or sign in front of your home to indicate non-food treats are available. "Candy that's safe other times of the year might not be safe during Halloween". Using Jill Castle's helpful candy allergen guide, the child's parent would have to remove almost every chocolate candy bar along with Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls and Jolly Ranchers from the candy collected.

"The Teal Pumpkin Project is an easy way to make a big impact in your community". Those who know what this non-traditionally colored pumpkin means will know that it is safe for their kids with allergies to trick-or-treat at that home.

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

Since its inception, the Teal Pumpkin Project has rocketed in popularity, with over 18,000 households from all 50 states participating in 2016, FARE said. "There's some little treats or toys I can have that are non-food because with allergies you can't just have random candy", Hess said.

The Knoxville Elks Lodge No. 160 made a decision to join the Teal Pumpkin Project at their trunk-or-treat this year. Our work is organized around three core tenets: LIFE - support the ability of individuals with food allergies to live safe, productive lives with the respect of others through our education and advocacy initiatives; HEALTH - enhance the healthcare access of individuals with food allergies to state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment; and HOPE - encourage and fund research in both industry and academia that promises new therapies to improve the allergic condition. Many speculate whether further progression of the movement will lead towards a healthier attitude around trick-or-treating all together.

This nationwide effort is trying to make trick-or-treating less tricky for kids with food allergies. The "Teal Pumpkin Project" aims to give kids with food allergies options.

While the teal pumpkin is not meant to replace the traditional act of giving out candy on Halloween, it is an important way to include those who may have dietary restrictions, organizers said.
