Why you need to be a part of the Teal Pumpkin Project

Why you need to be a part of the Teal Pumpkin Project this Halloween! Help the kids with food allergies to have a fun night by being a part of this Halloween.

Why you need to be apart of the Teal Pumkin Project

FoodAllergy.org has come out with a great project for the kids with food allergies. It is called the Teal Pumpkin Project. I am excited to tell you about it on OMG Goodies.

About the Teal Pumpkin Project –

Last year I found out about a project that I wish was in creation when I was younger and trick or treating with friends. A little bit of insight into my life, I have had food allergies for a very long time. I have an oral allergy to a lot of food like veggies, fruits, and nuts. It made trick or treating not to fun for me. I stopped trick or treating when I was about 7 years old because it was no fun having to toss candy out I couldn’t eat.

As I grew up I started to get an allergy to the fillers and other stuff they pack the candy full of. Now that I am an adult, I like to give out a variety of candy so tht they could pick something they could eat. That was till I heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project. Last year I took the challenge and got myself a pumpkin and painted it teal. I had candy to give as well as non-candy items for kids, like myself, that has a food allergy.

I was giving out Items such as:

This year I will be helping with a local Halloween party and I want to be able to give out items that are not candy as well. I was looking on amazon and there are all kinds of Halloween toys that you can get for a nice price. I suggest you check it out ~> HERE <~

Every child deserves to be a part of the Halloween celebration! Remember that when you have kids come to ou door and help these little ones have a great Halloween.

Suggestions on how to make Halloween better for kids with Allergies.

  1. But the items int he same bowl and allow the kids to pick what they want.
  2. Place a Teal Pumpkin on your doorstep to allow parents to know you are an allergy friendly house.
  3. Pick items that both girls and boys will like.
  4. Variety is a good thing!
  5. Decorate your house and enjoy the trick or treaters as they come tot he door.
  6. Don;t mention when you see a kid pick a toy over the candy. Not everyone wants the world to know we are different or have a food allergy.
  7. Convince your friends and neighbors to take part in the Teal Pumpkin Project.
  8. If you are doing a trunk or treat, make sure to have allergy friendly items.
