Kids are gonna be out before you know it. There's very little that can keep a kid from Trick or Treating.But there are some kids out there that are pretty limited in what they can eat.  For example, if a kid has a peanut allergy, that means they can't have a lot of the Halloween candies out there. I bet it's frustrating for the kids and the parents! It's pretty scary to think that somebody with a severe food allergy could be in some real danger just from trying to have a little fun on Halloween.

But, there is an option if your little Trick or Treater has to be careful. That's where the Teal Pumpkin Project comes in.  They give lots of information on some of the more common food allergies, and what an allergy actually does to your body.  According to their website, the message is simple:

Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.

How neat! It's great that all the kids have options when it comes to the fun of Halloween. So, why not pick up a couple of things that are non candy, paint a pumpkin, and join in the movement! You'll make a kid's year, I'm sure of it.

Pumpkinly yours,
