For many children, Halloween is a fun time to dress up and eat lots of sweets and treats. But for some children, it can be dangerous and even life threatening.

Food allergies can be very dangerous for anyone who has them, and when is comes to trick-or-treating it can become even more scary. That's where teal pumpkins come in. People who put out teal pumpkins are letting trick-or-treaters know that they can come to their house and get other things then candy. Options might include small toys, bubbles, or other non-food items to ensure that they will be safe in trick-or-treating at their house.

If you're going to be handing out candy this year, you might want to consider doing a teal pumpkin so all children can enjoy a fun and safe Halloween.
