(PCM) Each year thousands of children across the country will go out trick-or-treating picking up candy of all varieties to enjoy. However, there are some children that suffer from dietary restrictions, food allergies, diabetes and a host of other illnesses that do not allow them to enjoy most of the candy that is picked up door to door on Halloween.
This can prove to be quite an issue for mom and dad, as well as, incredibly frustrating for the child who can’t understand why he or she can not enjoy the same trick-or-treating experience as their peers. While it is completely impossible to be able to anticipate every child’s specific needs when giving out candy and treats this Halloween, there is one small thing you can do to be sure that all visiting children can be accommodated properly.
If you paint a pumpkin teal in color and leave it on your front steps or porch parents and children will know that it is safe for them to go trick-or-treating at your home, as you will offer alternatives other than candy such as toys or small games that will not make them sick.
Such a wonderful idea and we will certainly be on the lookout for teal pumpkins during the Halloween season. We urge everyone to take part in the Teal Pumpkin Project!
