  • Project promotes safe trick-or-treating for children suffering from food allergies

It's just one of many places participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project in Northwest Arkansas this Halloween.

Food allergies and Halloween can make for a frightful combination if the family isn't careful, but the Teal Pumpkin project hopes to ease some of that stress by promoting the option to give out candy as well as non-food treats.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is a nationwide initiative to raise awareness about children with food allergies.

This year, the group's website is offering a map that helps families find allergy-free houses for trick-or-treating.

The evaluation was carried out by a team of "internal and external functional area experts", against weighted criteria. Dunne is one of the registered home born players for Ireland and he could feature at some stage in the tournament.


To participate, you can either spray-paint a real pumpkin or download a teal pumpkin poster online, said Casandra Whiteside, the London mom who's bringing the mermaid-hued gourds to Middlesex County.

Teal pumpkins are making their way into Halloween decorations nationwide.

FARE suggests passing out non-food items like, vampire fangs, spider rings, glow sticks, pencils, bracelets, and more.

One in thirteen kids have food allergies and for families' part of that statistic, they're grateful there is a safe way for their kids to take part in the fun of Halloween. According to Turner, with food allergies on the rise, it's good for parents to be informed. Ingredients for sweets that were once safe may have changed and it's a good idea to carry an epinephrine pen at all times.
