It’s not too late to participate in the Food Allergy Research and Education’s (FARE) Teal Pumpkin Project. The Teal Pumpkin Project is a way to provide a safe and inclusive trick-or-treat experience for children with food allergies. Here’s how it works:
We participated in this last year, and while we did not have too many trick-or-treaters who needed non-food treats, it felt good to provide that option. This year, I’m re-using the non-food treats that we had left and adding some new ones. I’m actually going to be mixing some non-food items in with our bowl of traditional Halloween candy as well. Kids get SO many sugary treats on Halloween. Why not replace some of the candy I would normally give out with fun Halloween toys or bubbles? Happy Haloween, everybody!
