Teal Pumpkin Project Ideas: Non-food trinkets

Halloween is a silly + spooky time for all. It's a great fall community event. But, for kids with food allergies, it can often be a difficult night. You see, much of the candy offered on Halloween night contains one or many of the top food allergens, like: peanuts, wheat, soy, dairy, or tree nuts, such as almonds. So, allergic kids are not able to enjoy or participate in the treats they collect. This is why the Teal Pumpkin Project was initiated.

Teal Pumpkin Project

The Teal Pumpkin Project focuses on offering non-food treats to give kids with food allergies safe + fun options to enjoy on Halloween night. The Teal Pumpkin Project doesn't hope to replace candy on Halloween night, it just aims to offer additional items for kids that are unable to eat the candy due to food allergies or other health conditions.
