Allergies can make Halloween a tough time for kids who are lactose intolerant or allergic to nuts. "Children with food allergies often feel "excluded" from simple things, such as classroom parties or trick or treating, simply because they can not eat something". "I applied for the teen advisory group two years ago once I was eligible and have been a part of it ever since".

The teal pumpkin is not just a decoration but a sign welcoming kids with allergies for a safe treat.

The FARE site states that the project was inspired by a local awareness activity in Tennessee which was promoting messages of awareness, inclusion and community.

"It's grown like insane", he said.

Daredevil: D'Onofrio's Kingpin Returns For Season 3
With his return, rumors are brewing that we will see " Daredevil " season 3 adapt " Born Again ", a famous comic book arc. D'Onofrio did an excellent job portraying the complex and layered villain of Daredevil's first season.

The Teal Pumpkin Project allows parents and kids to know which homes offer safe treats.

"We know that it's making a difference in so many lives and we are thrilled to grow this campaign on behalf of children who have food allergies, which are potentially life-threatening", Lois Witkop, chief advancement officer at Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), said. Cross-contamination is a concern, as many food allergies require only a small amount of the allergen to trigger a reaction.

A food allergy is a life-altering and potentially life-threatening disease; 15 million Americans now have some sort of food allergy, including one in 13 children.

Due to the serious effects that can arise from food allergies, Guerrera feels this is an important cause.

Ideas for non-food treats include stickers and bookmarks.

Food Allergy Research & Education, which launched the Teal Pumpkin Project in 2014, is the nation's leading organization dedicated to food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness and the world's largest private source of funding for food allergy research. "This is a chance for your child to be completely included on Halloween".

To become involved in this project is really quite simple.

Why teal? The quick answer is that the pumpkins indicate families who are participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project, an effort to make Halloween trick-or-treating more friendly for kids with food allergies.
