A nation-wide project to keep kids with food allergies safe this Halloween has released a list of Treasure Valley neighborhoods in which families can trick-or-treat without worry. 

The Teal Pumpkin Project is backed by the Food Allergy Research & Education non-profit.  

Houses with a teal pumpkin on the doorstep or a sign in the window offer non-food treats such as glow sticks, school supplies or stickers to trick-or-treaters. 

Halloween candies often contain milk, nuts and eggs, which are all common allergens. 

A list of Treasure Valley homes and neighborhoods participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project is available here.
