Teal Pumpkin Project encourages allergy safe treats for Halloween

Allergies can take the fun out of Halloween for kids, but they don’t have to.

The Teal Pumpkin Project is an effort to ensure that all kids can get in on the fun.

Homes are encouraged to distribute allergy friendly treats.

Suggested items are glow sticks, stickers and pencils.

By putting a teal pumpkin outside your home, you can help trick or treaters know you have treats all kids can enjoy.

“Who ever has that teal pumpkin, then they’ll be prompted to pick up instead of candy or goodies, a toy or a trinket of some sort,” said Dr. Giana Dicoara, Physician with Allergy Associates.

Trick or treating in the city of La Crosse runs from 4 to 8 p-m on October 31st.
