Start a new tradition this Halloween: paint a pumpkin teal and place it on your porch as a sign to other families managing food allergies that you have non-food treats available at your home.
Your teal pumpkin is also a way to raise awareness in your neighborhood about food allergies!
FARE recommends purchasing inexpensive non-food treats to hand out. This is a great way to include ALL children in trick-or-treating.
Examples of non-food items include: glow bracelets or necklaces, pencils, markers, boxes of crayons, erasers, bubbles, mini Slinkies, whistles or noisemakers, bouncy balls, coins, spider rings, vampire teeth, mini notepads, playing cards, bookmarks, stickers, and stencils.
