Project lets kids with food allergies trick-or-treat without worry

Project lets kids with food allergies trick-or-treat without worry

Its goal is to help promote food allergy awareness and inclusion of all trick-or-treaters.

Gregory says there are numerous alternatives for trick-or-treaters.

Every year, thousands of kids dress up in their costumes and head out for Halloween fun, but have their night ruined when the candy they receive contains ingredients that they are allergic to.

The blue-green pumpkin placed at city hall's front desk alerts children that it's a place offering non-food treat options. "Just a small bowl with like five of your non-food items, and then a separate bowl for the candy".

Food Allergy Canada is also raising $50,000 to buy 50,000 teal bulbs, which they will distribute across Canada to support children with food allergies.

A teal pumpkin on a doorstep means the resident has non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys.

"About 1 in 13 children in the United States has a food allergy, so we've got a lot of kids who can't participate in Trick or Treating." said Registered Dietitian Chrissy Watters, who works for Hy-Vee.

Local officials are encouraging residents to participate in the "Teal Pumpkin Project" this Halloween. "He can't have most commercial candy, so it is that much more important to me to make sure I have non-food treats out for him and other kids like him".

"Right now, in some of the stores, the Christmas lights are out and they have different teal versions of those lights and they can be strung across the porch, or on a pumpkin".

"Halloween is for everyone". This will let the community know you're looking out for kids with allergies.
