Guide: Make Halloween less tricky for kids with food allergies
By: Sandrina Rodrigues/News 12 Digital
Food Allergy Research & Education's Teal Pumpkin Project is raising food allergies awareness. You can be inclusive for all trick or treaters with the addition of trinkets and toys to your treats. Keep a bowl with candy, and another with non-food items.
Let trick-or-treaters know that you're participating with non-food treats by putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep and adding your home to the Teal Pumpkin Project map.
Here are some examples of low-cost items that can be purchased at dollar stores, party supply stores or online. Many can be found in a Halloween theme:
Glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces
Pencils, pens, crayons or markers
Halloween erasers or pencil toppers
Whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers
Finger puppets or novelty toys
Try to avoid moldable clay - it may contain wheat. Try to choose latex-free items.
