Food Allergy Safe Trick or Treating

If your child (or you!) have food allergies, trick or treating is hard. Almost all candy has gluten or dairy, and if your child can’t have preservatives, dyes, or artificial/natural flavor, forget it. So how can you and your kid go trick or treating and still have fun?

The Teal Pumpkin Project.

Ever heard of it? I hadn’t either. A friend passed along the information, which I found really clear and useful. The basic idea is to put out a sign with a teal pumpkin to indicate that you have non-candy treats for children with food allergies. The site even suggests some food alternatives to hand out like bracelets, vampire fangs, and glow sticks. I, for one, am absolutely going to get a pumpkin, paint it teal, and get some fun non-food things to hand out!

Pass the word on through your blog, social media, and word of mouth. Help kids suffering from allergies enjoy Halloween too!


Keep on living the wheat free life!
