Can we talk pumpkins and Halloween for a quick minute? And I’m not talking about the orange or even off white variety. Teal. Teal? Yup.

Teal is the color of food allergy awareness, a topic near and dear to my heart. So this year, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) is encouraging people to paint a pumpkin teal to raise awareness for food allergies. Halloween is especially hard for kids with food allergies, as I’m sure you can imagine.

All kids should have the right to participate in all activities. To be kids. To be like their friends. To not be scared. But reaching into a bowl of unknown candy… often filled with those very allergens you’re trying to avoid, is scary.

Paint a pumpkin teal (and/or print this free sign) to let people know you have safe, non food items this Halloween. Great non food items can be found on FARE’s website.

I’ve painted my pumpkin! I hope you will too.

    I love the idea of painting a teal pumpkin! I live in a small little community so we never get trick-or-treaters BUT I will pass this information on to my mom who gets tons of little ones every year. Such a great idea! Now, onto these delicious cookies. Love the combination of chocolate and pumpkin, yum!

    • Rachel — October 17th, 2014 @ 2:39 pm

      Thanks for passing the info along! :)

    My girls have egg, soy, and peanut allergies. So a few years ago we started getting a visit from the Switch Witch after Halloween. You leave all of your halloween candy out at night and then the Switch Witch comes and takes your candy because she needs it and leaves you a present. Just something little but always something special. :) You of course have to tell your children a wonderful story about the switch witch but Sparkle Stories has a free story about the switch witch too!

    • Rachel — October 25th, 2014 @ 7:39 am

      I only heard of people doing that kind of switch this year. Thankfully I still have time to decide if that’ll become a new tradition or not! Thanks for the reminder :)
