Food Allergy Canada's Director of Advocacy Beatrice Povolo, said participating in the shine a teal light campaign is a great way for people to show their support for children who have food allergies. You can also put it in the hands of the kids by asking if they'd like candy or a prize. "I saw that you have a teal pumpkin, I'm here for the non-food treats, 'you can pull that out that bowl for that child". Lindsay Wiese a dietitian with the Utica Ridge Hy-Vee says this not only allows other children to enjoy Halloween, but it's also important.

Traditionally, Halloween decorations are black and orange, occasionally some purple and lime green to mix it up, but now the color teal is getting added to the list. "Just a small bowl with like five of your non-food items, and then a separate bowl for the candy. It can cause severe allergic reaction, so it's really important to be able to provide all of the kids with an option for trick or treating", said Wiese. You can register your house on FARE so families can know which homes to go to.
