Teal Pumpkin Project Looks to Highlight Allergies for a Safer Halloween
Lifestyle| | By Jason Owen
From FARE’s website: “This nationwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option, and keeps Halloween a fun, positive experience for all!” FARE estimates some 100,000 households will take the pledge this year. To participate is easy: simply paint a pumpkin teal to place in front of your home with a free printable sign from FARE (available on the website) to show you have non-food treats available. Food allergies are a serious threat to families. One-in-thirteen children suffer from some form of food allergy. The fun of Halloween can be a scary situation to parents who have to pick through candy to make sure it is safe and the threat they may miss a piece worries millions of parents each and every year.
