Available at dollar stores, party supply stores, or online shops, these low-cost items can be purchased and handed out to all trick-or-treaters, or made available in a separate bowl from candy if you choose to hand out both options. Nearly all of these items can be found in a Halloween theme or festive colors.
The Teal Pumpkin Project promotes safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies. This worldwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option. It keeps Halloween a fun, positive experience for all!
Every year, millions of children look forward to Halloween, planning their costumes and anticipating loads of candy. But kids with food allergies (and their parents) must approach Halloween with caution – and diligent label-reading!
Many candies are off-limits for kids with food allergies, either because their allergen is an included ingredient or because of the risk of cross-contact.
The good news is that Halloween can be just as much fun for kids with food allergies.
