5 Teal Pumpkins You Can Order Online
Let trick-or-treaters and parents know that you have allergy-friendly treats this Halloween with a teal pumpkin.
If your kiddos don’t have a food allergy, be thankful. Simple activities such as trick-or-treating can become a nightmare--especially if you have to watch out for a deadly peanut allergy. It’s also really tough for kids to see their friends getting treats that they can’t have. In the last couple of years, FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) has made trick-or-treating a lot easier for kids with allergies with the Teal Pumpkin Project. Teal pumpkins have become the official way to let parents and trick-or-treaters know that you have allergy-friendly treats. Here’s how it works: Put a teal pumpkin out on your porch. Stock up on non-candy treats such as stickers or vampire teeth, or buy allergy-friendly candy from brands like Free2b. (Their chocolate cups are free from the top 12 food allergens.) When a child with an allergy comes up to your door, you can give them a treat that won’t make them sick.
You could easily paint pumpkins teal, but if you don't have time or prefer fake pumpkins that you can use year after year, here are five options you can simply order online. From budget-friendly finds to gorgeous, sophisticated styles you’ll want to keep as decor even after Halloween is over, shop our favorites below.
We love decor that can last an entire season and serve double duty. This beautiful glass pumpkin works as an allergy-friendly alert for Halloween, but you could also save it and use it again at Thanksgiving for a harvest-themed centerpiece.
Display a teal pumpkin by your door to let trick-or-treaters with food allergies know you're providing non-food treats. Check out The Teal Pumpkin Project for more information.
