This Halloween, Moms Are Painting Their Pumpkins Blue and It’s Going Viral

Halloween is a special time for kids and I know I couldn’t wait going out trick-or-treating for Halloween when I was a kid. Some kids have food allergies but that shouldn’t be a reason to not enjoy going out door to door and enjoying Halloween.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is about raising awareness of food allergies. It allows children with food allergies to enjoy trick-or-treating by collecting non-food treats such as stickers or small toys. The movement was inspired by a mom in Tennessee and is now a worldwide movement with 50 states and 14 countries participating.

Inspired by the efforts of a mom in Tennessee, teal pumpkins are popping up across the country.

Instead of getting treats that could possibly trigger an allergic reaction, kids are given non-food treats instead.
