If you are out and about this Halloween season keep an eye out for teal pumpkins.
The teal pumpkins signal that homes are offering allergy-friendly alternatives for kids who may suffer from various allergies.
Likewise, if you see teal pumpkin baskets in the hands of trick-or-treaters, make sure to avoid peanut candies or other items that may cause an allergic reaction.
The Teal Pumpkin project began in 2014 and has grown so large that nearly 1 home on every block features at least one allergy-friendly home.
Stickers, bubbles, and school supplies are good ideas for candy alternatives.
