NEW YORK – Trick-or-treaters may see teal pumpkins outside houses this Halloween, all thanks to a group trying to help children with food allergies.
It’s never easy for children with allergies — or their parents — the day after Halloween.
The Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) group is asking people who are giving out candy — and want to provide another option for those with food allergies — to mark their home with a teal-colored pumpkin.
The alternative non-edible items can include vampire teeth, glow bracelets, pencils, playing cards and mini notepads.
The #TealPumpkinProject began in 2014, and recently got a huge social media boost after being shared by actor Ashton Kutcher.
