If you come across a house with a teal pumpkin on the porch this Halloween, the color of that pumpkin has a significant meaning.
The Teal Pumpkin Project is a great way to show solidarity for kids with allergies. The biggest allergies? Peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, wheat, and shellfish. Allergies have been increasing in recent years, and some kids can end up in the ER from eating candy containing those ingredients.
However, a teal pumpkin on the front porch is a message that your house has non-food items for trick-or-treaters who need them. If your child suffers from food allergies, then trick-or-treating can be a stressful thing, rather than a fun family event like it should be.
