Why Some Houses Are Displaying Teal Pumpkins for Halloween”

The Food Allergy & Research Education Group said to keep non-food treats in a different container, to avoid them coming in contact with any food kids may be allergic to.

Non-food treatsThrough her work with the organization, she is a major proponent of the Teal Pumpkin Project, which, according to the FARE website, "encourages people to raise awareness of food allergies", while promoting "inclusions of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season" by providing non-food treats and placing a teal pumpkin outside your home. "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.

When your child has food allergies, you're constantly aware of what they eat at school parties, in restaurants or at friends' houses.' Recipe ingredients are always on your mind. Teal is the color used for food allergy awareness.

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. The effort has grown in popularity since it started several years ago.

"It helps to include children with food allergies on a day that can be hard for them", said Guerrera.

"Not everybody understands food allergies", Erica Kramer, whose son has food allergies, said. Children with medical conditions that limit food options are also benefited.

"Food allergies can be life-threatening and even a small amount can make a person have a reaction", said Guerrera. A final tip? Check candy before children start snacking.

Marks hopes more people get involved with the Teal Pumpkin Project and help spread the word about food allergies.
