Food Allergy Research & Education or FARE is starting a new tradition this year asking families nationwide to paint pumpkins teal and consider passing out non-food items for Halloween.
The goal is to make trick-or-treating just as much fun for children who have food allergies. Teal is the color of food allergy awareness.
The holiday is usually a no-no for children with peanut allergies as many candy bar are made in factories that do carry peanut products.
By putting out a teal pumpkin for Halloween, you're telling trick-or-treaters you do have something besides candy to offer.
