My kids and I were asked to do a news segment yesterday for Fox 5 News about Food Allergies during Halloween.  As we all know, having food allergies during a food centric holiday can be very difficult.  Luckily, FARE aims to make that easier with its #TealPumpkinProject.  Please watch the clip and pass it on!  I think it goes without say that Halloween would be even MORE fun if it were more inclusive and SAFE for all children!




Our segment is running throughout today, but in case you missed it or don’t live in the DC market – here you go:

  1. The Teal Pumpkin Project was a hit for our kids, even though the only non-food treats they got were from their grandparents. We still came home with plenty of edible candy, and have a new Halloween tradition in our house! It was great to see this spread across the country, wasn’t it?
