Teal Pumpkin Project

Is teal the new orange?

Allergic to Halloween candy? Look for a teal pumpkin – the cteal-pumpkin-projectcampaign which makes trick-or-treating safer…

Now in its third year, the Teal Pumpkin Project is in the spotlight again. The idea is that households place a teal coloured pumpkin outside their house on Halloween if there are allergy- friendly goodies on offer to trick or treaters.

The brainchild  in 2014 of FARE at foodallergy.org in the US, The Teal Pumpkin Project now has many nations taking part with the idea really catching on here in the UK too.

An increasing number of children in the UK are affected by a food allergy, so what allergy friendly items can you offer? They could be healthy or free from treats, and FARE also suggest non-food items such as a tiny colouring books or a bouncy ball or glow in the dark bracelet perhaps.

We love the inclusivity of the Teal Pumpkin Project, trick or treating should be available to all
