If kids have food allergies, look for teal pumpkins while trick-or-treating

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — For parents of kids with food allergies, Halloween can be more stressful than fun, so some homes have started offering toys and other non-food items.

The Teal Pumpkin Project asks those homes to leave a painted pumpkin on their porch to signify their participation and add their address to the interactive map online.

On their website, they have ideas for non-food treats, tips for trick-or-treating safely with food allergies and other free resources for kids and parents.

One in 13 kids live with food allergies, while even more have food intolerances and other conditions.
