You may notice teal pumpkins in front of the houses you see when you take your children trick or treating this weekend. These pumpkins indicate that non - food items like glow sticks, small toys, and other items are available in addition to candy and other treats. These non - food items allow children with food allergies to be included in trick or treating fun.

Here are just a few of the items you can offer for trick or treaters with food allergies:

Glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces
Bouncy balls
Finger puppets or novelty toys
Spider rings
Vampire fangs
