PA & NJ Food Allergy News – Help Support Kids With Food Allergies This Halloween


Posted on Oct 27, 2015

Halloween is a celebration that most kids look forward to every year.  They can dress up in fun costumes and walk around their neighborhoods to go trick-or-treat.  However, for kids with food allergies, such as peanut and other nut allergies, they may not go trick-or-treating because a lot of candies and treats people hand out may have nuts in them. 

The Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) launched a national campaign last year called the Teal Pumpkin Project which raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. 

To participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project, households can take a pledge which states:

This Halloween, I pledge to show some extra kindness to the kids I know.  I’ll get some non-food treats at the store, like glow sticks, bracelets, stickers and more! I will put my teal pumpkin on proud display, on my porch, in a window, or on a bale of hay.  My teal pumpkin means I support children with food allergies, because all kids deserve to have a safe, happy Halloween.

To participate in this campaign, you can sign the pledge here.

Last year, households across 50 states participated in this project. This campaign promotes safety and inclusion of children with food allergies. Show your support and participate in this Project!
