This Halloween Teal Pumpkin for Awareness about Child Food Allergies

Chocolate is frightening if you're allergic to milk, and a candy bar with nuts can be deadly. However, nowadays, kids, who suffer from food allergies, are being targeted for it. Tonya Winders, the CEO and the President of Allergy Asthma Network, stated that they need to make people understand that food allergies among children is a real issue and bullying kids with these allergies does exist.
The Teal Pumpkin Project was inspired by a program from the Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET), led by support group leader Becky Basalone, who originated the idea to paint a pumpkin teal and place it on the porch to let children with food allergies know they would have a safe treat at that home. A flyer can also be printed from the website.
There are a few sweets considered "safe", but people participating in the project usually hand out non-food items. Food Allergy Research & Education's first Facebook post about the Teal Pumpkin Project past year, reached 2.7 million people in less than 72 hours, the organization reported. Dubbed the "Teal Pumpkin Project" - as teal is the official color for food-allergy awareness - people are simply leaving teal-painted pumpkins on their porches to let youngsters know they've got non-food or allergy-friendly treats to offer.
As you prepare to hand out candy on Halloween, it's important to remember that some kids have food allergies.
Additionally, in some cases, foods believed to be "safe" may have been manufactured using the same equipment that process allergy-ridden items, while others may have been cross contaminated somewhere along the way. This way all kids can safely be included in Halloween activities. Schwartz recommends checking to see if the medication is up-to-date before leaving the house, as auto-injectors typically expire within one year. "Especially in times like Halloween where they go trick-or-treating".
For younger children, Schwartz adds, "You don't want to bring up the larger, darker side of things". "I can speak firsthand to the thrill when a kid comes and gets something they can keep, it just means so much to them".
