Food allergies are life-altering and could be life-threatening.
According to the CDC, one in 13 children in the United States has a food allergy.
Many popular Halloween candy contain common ingredients that are the source of allergic reactions: nuts, milk, egg, soy or wheat.
The Teal Pumpkin Project was started to help kids, with allergies or other conditions, to enjoy the joys of Halloween safely.
All a person has to do is buy or paint a Teal Pumpkin and place it outside of the home. This will show that you have more than just candy for the trick-or-treaters.
