Teal Pumpkins Try to Make Halloween Safer for Kids with Food Allergies

Halloween is a time for fun and candy, but for some kids it's a scary time and not just because of masks and costumes. 

Kids with food allergies have fewer options for treats, so one non-profit group is looking to make things easier.

Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) is helping parents and kids navigate trick or treating by placing a teal pumpkin out alongside their other jack-o'-lanterns.

The idea is to signal to other families that that home has non-food treats for the kids to prevent any allergy issues.

FARE suggests low-cost items like stickers, bubbles, glow sticks and pencils as safe alternatives to candy.
