Teal Pumpkins Make Halloween Safer For Kids With Allergies In CNY
Do you know what it means when a teal pumpkin is on display?
Teal is recognized as the national color of food allergy awareness. Showcasing a teal pumpkin at Halloween means you have non-food treats available. Here are a few ideas from foodallergy.org:
- Glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces
- Pencils, pens, crayons or markers
- Halloween erasers or pencil toppers
- Mini Slinkies
- Whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers
- Bouncy balls
- Finger puppets or novelty toys
- Spider rings
- Vampire fangs
- Mini notepads
- Playing cards
Participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project can make a significant impact in our community, as 1 in 13 children have food allergies that can be life-threating. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.
No teal pumpkin? No problem. A flyer can be printed from foodallergy.org to show the home is participating in Teal Pumpkin Project.
