Have you seen these? Teal is the new colour of Halloween folks. That is, a teal pumpkin. When placed on your doorstep on Halloween it indicates you have non-food items to offer. The Teal Pumpkin Project is an inspired initiative that started in 2014 by Food Allergy Research and Education to educate the public and promote the inclusion of individuals with food allergies and sensitivities and those who cannot eat candy.
You can go to foodallergycanada.ca to download a copy of the Teal Pumpkin Project poster to place in your window on Halloween to let children/families know you have non-food treats available. Halloween should be fun for all children and by participating, you make it that much easier.
