The Teal Pumpkin Project Reminds You to Give Safe Treats to Maine Ghouls With Food Allergies [VIDEO]
Teal Pumpkin Project is underway to provide a safer, happier Halloween for the 6.9 million kids living with food allergies that range from nuts, dairy, eggs, gluten and more. If you are giving out treats to accommodate kids on special diets, then put out a teal colored pumpkin! Food allergies are for real and can be life threatening. Check out Foodallergy.org to learn more about them. If you know a child with a food allergy, you understand how much it impacts not just their life, but their family's.
