This Halloween Teal Is The New Orange

Yes, according to the Food & Allergy Research & Education (FARE) organization, this Halloween teal is the new orange. Halloween is rapidly approaching and for some families food allergies can make the event a very dangerous one. The Teal Pumpkin Project is a countrywide campaign, held in all 50 states (and the capital), to aid in raising awareness of food allergies and make the haunting holiday a more inclusive and safer environment for all trick-or-treaters.

Those interested in participating in The Teal Pumpkin Project just put out a teal-colored pumpkin on their front porch or doorstep in order to indicate that they are offering allergy free treats. The website, tealpumpkinproject.org, even offers interested parties an assortment of downloadable signs they can download, print out and hang in their front windows or even on their front doors.

According to current information from the Teal Pumpkin Project campaign, over 100,000 residences have already committed to offer non-food treats this Halloween. In addition, maps may also be available on the website, www.foodallergy.org, which shows which homes are participating this Halloween.

For children with food allergies and some other conditions, Halloween can include hidden dangers such as additives and ingredients that can have dangerous health effects. Regardless of the treat, parents of children with food allergies need to check their bags for candy that could pose a danger to them.

Candy labels should be checked. Not all candy bars contain exactly the same ingredients. Safety experts note, however, that no child should be permitted to eat any candy that has not been previously inspected.

The Teal Pumpkin Project suggests that non-food Halloween treats could include such items as : bookmarks, bouncy balls, boxes of character Band-Aids, coloring sheets, crayons, eye patches, glow sticks, “googly-eye” novelty glasses, hair accessories, Silly Putty, Slime, Slinky Jrs, spider rings, stickers, toy cars and wind-up toys.
