The Teal Pumpkin project was started as an easy way to make trick-or-treating a more inclusive activity for kids with food allergies and other conditions. More than 1 in 13 kids deal with food allergies and many more have intolerances that make Halloween fun potentially dangerous.
You can participate by placing a teal pumpkin on your doorstep to let kids know you are offering treats other than candy or download a poster from the Food Allergy and Research Education website.
Ideas for Non-Candy Halloween Treats
- Bouncy balls
- Glow sticks or bracelets

- Mini bubble sticks
Don’t forget to add your house to the Teal Pumpkin Project Map, which helps families identify houses with safe treats in their area.
