Fall has arrived, and Halloween is waiting around the corner. Many have already begun the holiday decorating in preparation for the holiday. But this year, you may have noticed some blue pumpkins in your neighborhood. If your kids stop at one of those houses, they’ll will receive treats other than candy…
The blue pumpkins are a part of the Teal Pumpkin Project. Created by the Food Allergy Research And Education, to make it easier for children who have food allergies to have a safe Halloween. Many children are unable to eat Halloween candy because of their food allergies.
The purpose of placing the blue pumpkins in the neighborhood is to let people know that the house has other goodies besides candy. The Food Allergy Research And Education group has a list of non-food items that people can hand out to kids on their website. It includes things like Halloween stickers, playing cards and mini notebooks.
The Food Allergy And Research Education group is asking for more homeowners to participate in The Teal Pumpkin Project in order to show their support for kids with food allergies. It is simple to do and would make Halloween enjoyable even or those children who can’t eat candy. Those poor, poor souls.
