Today's guest blog post comes from Nancy Gregory, senior director of communications for Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). For more information about the Teal Pumpkin Project®, please visit tealpumpkinproject.org. For more information about food allergies, please visit foodallergy.org.

But for families managing food allergies, this sugar-fueled day can be stressful, and sometimes a bit of a bummer for kids who can’t eat all the candy they collect. That’s where the Teal Pumpkin Project® comes in. Launched by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) in 2014, this awareness campaign was created to help make Halloween happy and safe for all children.

A perfect treat to celebrate Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos. This celebration dates from centuries ago and is a Mexican tradition.

Because we believe there is still life after death, our beloved ones that have left deserve to be remembered and celebrated.
