E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association
Let the holiday season begin! Amidst the lovely autumn foliage, both kids and the young at heart are looking forward to Halloween. But if your children have severe food allergies, it can also be a time of concern. This year the Food Allergy Research & Education group is actively promoting the national Teal Pumpkin Project.
By placing a teal pumpkin on your doorstep, it means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions. Simply buy a fake teal pumpkin or paint one, and also try to avoid giving out candy with nuts or milk ingredients.
