4th Annual Teal Pumpkin Paint Party

Teal Pumpkin Project Promoting Allergy Safe Treats On Halloween

This nationwide effort is trying to make trick-or-treating less tricky for kids with food allergies. Her solution started with painting a pumpkin teal, the color representing food allergy awareness. This way all kids can safely be included in Halloween activities.

About one in 13 children has a food allergy.

Let's look at it this way: A parent takes their child trick-or-treating and collects a plastic pumpkin full of candy.

The Teal Pumpkin Project allows parents and kids to know which homes offer safe treats.

"The Teal Pumpkin Project is an easy way to make a big impact in your community".

Many sweets are not safe for kids with life-threatening food allergies. "Our son's not old enough to say, 'Hey I have a peanut allergy can I have something else?' So we have to be right there beside him", Marks said.

Meghan Winegrad has two children with food allergies.

Those treats can be off limits to children with food allergies. FARE's mission is to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments.

Whaley participated in the project by passing out erasers and stickers during the Pikeville Farmers Market trick-or-treat event on Saturday morning. You can now find teal pumpkins sold in stores like CVS, Target, and Michael's, and if you are looking to see who has joined the movement in your neighborhood, FARE has a participation map to show all the participants offering non-food items this Halloween. This's the issue that the Teal Pumpkin Project aims to address.

If you don't want to purchase non-food items, it is helpful to separate allergy-free candy from candy that may trigger an allergic reaction if you're handing out goodies on October 31.

From coast to coast, teal pumpkins are making Halloween more fun and inclusive for millions of children with food allergies and other dietary restrictions thanks to the Teal Pumpkin Project®, an annual awareness campaign from Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).

Halloween is Tuesday and if you haven't painted your pumpkins teal yet, don't worry, you still have some time.
