Halloween can be a scary time for parents and kids with food allergies if you don’t know what to look for. What should be a relaxing holiday filled with fun tricks and delicious treats can be a source of stress when you have to diligently read through ingredient lists and facility information. Fortunately, there are many options available now for families looking to remain free from allergens. We’ve put together a collection of allergen friendly resources to help you navigate this Halloween season and still have fun!
Teal Pumpkin Project
FARE is amazing when it comes to raising awareness for food allergies any time of the year. The Teal Pumpkin Project was started in 2014 with the belief that every child (any age!) should be able to experience the magic of Halloween and the fun of trick-or-treating. To take part, people place a teal pumpkin outside of their home to indicate that they have non-food treats. As more allergy-friendly snack options have become available, the Teal Pumpkin Project has begun to include allergen friendly snack items, such as gluten-free Halloween candy and nut-free chocolate.
