Resources For An Allergy-friendly Halloween

I don't know about you, but great information hits my inbox in dribs and drabs, or it's scattered across my {way too many I admit} social media accounts.


I've pulled together some of the 'best-in-breed' Halloween resources I've seen recently to help you keep the fun in Halloween. I hope this information share will help you stress less over the safety of your Trick-or-Treating Jedi's, princesses, ghosts & goblins with food allergies.

FARE's Halloween Guidance

Other Resources To Help


FARE sponsors the Teal Pumpkin Project. Here's how you can get your teal on:


Show your teal at your doorstep and tell trick-or-treaters you're an allergy-friendly stop on their trick-or-treat adventure. FARE offers downloadable signage & flyers that can help you spread the word!


You can find teal pumpkins on Amazon, at Walmart, and Target. Or, grab that can of teal paint and transform your pumpkin patch finds into teal beacons for food allergic trick-treaters in your neighborhood.


Share information on non-candy treat alternatives with your child's teachers, with school administrators, with your church, with your local small business association or chamber of commerce, with your neighbors and friends as giveaways for a crowd in lieu of candy.
