Shine a Teal Light on food allergies this Halloween

Here’s how teal pumpkins help kids with food allergies on Halloween

Every year, thousands of kids dress up in their costumes and head out for Halloween fun, but have their night ruined when the candy they receive contains ingredients that they are allergic to. It was inspired by a Tennessee parent that wanted to signal they had non-food treats for kids with allergies or dietary restrictions - so they placed a painted teal pumpkin in front of their home on Halloween.

Showing that Halloween can be enjoyable for everyone, houses hosting a teal pumpkin are sure to have friendly faces and treats for everyone.

"So when kids come to your door, ring your doorbell, you say do you want candy, or do you want a non-food treat, you can paint a pumpkin blue and that lets people know from afar", said Kolaszewski.

The project started in Iowa to help support trick-or-treaters with food allergies and make them feel welcome.

Victoria City Hall is among other cities in North American taking part in the "Teal Pumpkin Project".
