Raise Awareness to Promote an Allergy-Friendly TEALOWEEN


Teal is the color of food allergy awareness and teal pumpkins have become the symbol of food allergy awareness at Halloween. When you see a teal pumpkin, it means non-food treats are available for kids with food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

Kids With Food Allergies has tips to help you have a safer and more inclusive TEALOWEEN.

1. Raise awareness about food allergies and being inclusive.

Change your social media profile picture to show others you support a safer, more inclusive celebration for all children.


2. Show others you have non-food treats available.

Placing a teal pumpkin by your door will let others know you have non-food treats available.

This is great.  I get a few hundred kids every Halloween, my neighborhood is a madhouse!  I will definitely be participating in Teal-O-Ween this year. Thanks for these ideas for non-food items to handout and accompanying resources so more kids can feel included in Trick or Treating.
