How to find allergy-friendly goodies this Halloween

EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) – Teal pumpkins sitting on someone’s steps are like a beacon of Halloween hope to children with food allergies.

Public health nutritionist Susan Krahn said one in 13 kids has a food allergy, including her daughter.

The teal pumpkin project is designated to offer those trick or treaters an alternative.

If a teal pumpkin is outside a home, it means they offer non-food goodies for your costumed kids.

Krahn said the project gives everyone the chance to join in the fun.

“It makes it feel a lot less stressful, knowing that at least there will be a handful of things that she can for sure have that can make it fun for her,” Krahn said.

You can help neighbors know you have allergy-friendly items by posting on a teal pumpkin map online.
