Halloween is right around the corner! You know what that means...trick-or-treating, one of kids favorite times of the year. In order to let Halloween be a holiday that is more inclusive for everyone, the Teal Pumpkin Project was created. This helps to include those with food allergies to the fun of trick-or-treating. Learn more about the Teal Pumpkin Project by watching the video above or going to their website: Teal Pumpkin Project!
Here's how you can take part:
- Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters.
- Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available.
- Display a free printable sign or premium poster from FARE to explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin.
We want everyone to have a good time on Halloween. If you have questions about your food allergies...give us a call at (414) 529-8500 or go to myaasc.com to find out more about what we are able to do for you at the Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Center.
Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween! What's your favorite kind thing to hand out to trick or treaters?
