Supporting the Teal Pumpkin Project Requires Minimal Effort with Big Payoff
Kids with food allergies can have a difficult time at Halloween. Trick-or-treating for treats that contain food allergens can be dangerous, disappointing, and embarrassing.
An easy way to support kids with food allergies is to signal that you have allergen-free treats at your house with a teal pumpkin.
A teal pumpkin tells families that you have treats that are free of the Top 9 Allergens and safe for people with food allergies. The Top 9 Allergens include:
Signaling with a teal pumpkin that you have treats for kids with food allergies is easy. The teal pumpkin can be store-bought or painted at home.
The Teal Pumpkin Project was started to bring awareness to Halloween hosts about the impact food allergens have on kids, especially children with nut, peanut, wheat, milk, and egg allergies. It also gives kids with food allergies an opportunity to trick-or-treat for treats that they can touch, eat, or play with.
I have more information on the Teal Pumpkin Project and recommendations for allergen-free treats on my Put a Teal Pumpkin on Your Porch blog.
Love Corn Video Review
There is a new product called Love Corn that is gluten-free and vegan, meaning it is certified to not have any wheat or milk products. From the ingredient list for the vegan cheddar corn, it does not appear to contain any of the other top 7 allergens either.
I reached out to Love Corn and requested a free sample of their product. I introduce the Cheddar Love Corn as a possible allergen-friendly Halloween treat in this 2-minute Love Corn video review.
Love Corn offers other flavors as well including Sea Salt, Salt & Vinegar, Hot & Spicy, and BBQ. If you want to learn more about Love Corn visit LoveCorn.com. Love Corn can be found at Amazon, Whole Foods, Target, ShopRite, Wegmans, Kroger, Sprouts, and more.
