Halloween can be a little too scary for trick-or-treaters with food allergies. So a not-for-profit is telling affected kids to look for the teal pumpkin.
The Teal Pumpkin Project asks homeowners to also offer non-food treats so that trick-or-treaters with allergies don't have to risk a reaction. Participants can identify their home as safe for children with allergies by placing a teal-colored pumpkin or a free printable sign outside their home. They can also add their address to a crowdsourced map on the website of Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the McLean, Va.-based group that organizes the Halloween project.
