Mom and Daughter Rally Local Businesses to Make Local Halloween Festival Food-Allergy Friendly

Kids With Food Allergies ·
The community of Clifton Springs, New York, attends a popular Halloween festival every year called Spooktacular. Families come in costume for the games, hayrides, pumpkin decorating, haunted house and dance party. And, of course, the trick-or-treating. After hearing about TEALOWEEN on the KFA community, Stasi had an idea to see if she could make Spooktacular more food-allergy friendly.

Will You #KeepItTeal This Halloween?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Teal pumpkins have become the symbol of food allergy awareness at Halloween. When you see a teal pumpkin, it means that non-food treats are available for kids with food allergies or other dietary restrictions. This makes Halloween safer and more inclusive for kids.

I am excited to see skittles, starbursts and lifesavers on here! Did anyone confirm whether or not they have dedicated top 8 free equipment also? Or was this list compiled using ingredient lists only? I know I should call them myself...just wanting to know the criteria used for the list. Thanks!

Re: 2016 Allergy-Friendly Halloween Candy Guide

Hi! Some companies on the list use dedicated equipment, and some may not - we always advise families to check if that is a concern, and we wanted to provide as much variety as possible. The number for Wrigley is 1-800-Wrigley, it seems, and they say to call for the most updated info. I hope you have a Happy Halloween!

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Hi MyBabyGirlsVoice, Thank you for trying to participate. When you click UPLOAD CLIPS, does this pop up? Sometimes it takes a few seconds to load, but when it is ready, the green plus with the text Upload File(s) will appear. You click on that link to open up your computer's file systems and select your image. Let me know if that answers your question or if you are having a different problem with the upload. Thanks!

Re: Halloween Costume Parade 2012

Hi AFiebelkorn, So the green plus sign shows up, and you click it, and nothing happens? A file box doesn't open for you to find your image on your computer? (Check to see if it is open "under" your browser by minimizing your browser.) It also might be running slow to open. Are you on a computer or a mobile device?

I've uploaded my son's photo twice. Both are showing in the pic preview on your page, but when you click it, they come up with errors. The reference ID changes each time, but the rest stays the same... for both pictures. I hope they can fix it before the contest ends! I even had one comment from a community leader, but when I went to view it and reply, the error came up. Kimberly Error: Error The page you requested is not available. Reference ID:...

FYI: When I log out... I can then view my own photos and even the comment on the one of them that has a comment. I can see that others are viewing them as well... almost 100 views. Both photos show up for me when not logged in. I am logged in with Facebook. When I logged back in, all the sudden my photos are not viewable and the error message comes up. Maybe this error has something to do with the logins done with Facebook? Hope this info. helps!

So sorry that you're having the error messages pop up! Thanks so much for sharing the error codes and the log in information. I'll flag it to ensure that admin sees them. I think they have identified the issue(s), but they need to perform an update before it can be fixed, and that may not be until after the parade, unfortunately. Glad you were able to see the views/comment(s). Again, so sorry for any inconvenience, and thanks so much for sharing the picture of your little firefighter with...
