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

Houses with a teal pumpkin on the doorstep or a sign in the window offer non-food treats such as glow sticks or stickers. Halloween candies often contain milk, nuts, and eggs, which are all common allergies. 

You can find a list of the allergy safe neighborhoods participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project here.  There are also ideas for non-food items to offer trick-or-treaters.
