SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) For parents of kids with food allergies, Halloween can be a stressful time of year. The Teal Pumpkin Project is helping to make Trick-Or-Treating safe and fun for everyone. Tiffany Rogers, Community Events Director for the Utah Food Allergy Network, joined Brian Carlson to explain how. 

 Rogers says ‘Teal’ is the color of food allergy awareness. A few years ago, someone had the idea to paint a pumpkin with the color to raise awareness. If a ‘Teal’ pumpkin is placed on a porch, it means non-food treats are available at that house. Rogers also says it’s OK to give out both candy and non-food treats, but reminds parents to not place a ‘Teal’ pumpkin outside, if non-food treats are not available.

Non-food treats like trinkets, can be found at dollar stores, Wal-Mart and party stores. If you don’t have a ‘Teal’ pumpkin but still want to participate, go to TealPumpkinProject.org and print off a sign to tape on your door.
