Happy Almost Halloween!

For those of us with food allergies, Halloween can be a little difficult.  So, I wanted to give a shout out to the Teal Pumpkin Project.  One out of thirteen kids have food allergies.  That’s potentially one out of thirteen kids that have trouble enjoying Halloween as candy is the most common treat.  The Teal Pumpkin Project encourages making Halloween safe for these kids.  That can be done by either adding a second bowl of non-food items (such as little toys, slinkies, stickers, etc.) or by eliminating the candy bowl all together.  By putting out a teal pumpkin, you’re telling kids with allergies (and their parents) that you have allergy safe items to pass out on Halloween.

I hope you’ll join me in giving kids an allergy safe Halloween!
