If You See a Teal Pumpkin This Halloween, This Is What It Means

A teal pumpkin on Halloween signifies that the house is offering non-food treats for trick-or-treaters.

This is a way to include children with food allergies or other dietary restrictions in the holiday fun.

Non-food treats can include items like stickers, glow sticks, or small toys.

The Teal Pumpkin Project, started in 2014, promotes the use of teal pumpkins to raise awareness about food allergies.

Participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project is easy - simply paint a pumpkin teal and display it outside your home on Halloween.

The project has gained popularity in recent years, with over 100,000 households participating in 2019.

Offering non-food treats can also benefit children without allergies, as it provides a wider range of options and promotes inclusivity.
