We see plenty of orange pumpkins, some white ones, some carved, some painted...but you may not be sure of why some are just painted a solid teal.

Since 2014, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) have been urging people to consider the food allergies of children when they give out Halloween candy.

According to FARE, one in 13 kids has a food allergy ranging from mild to life-threatening; common allergens in candies include nuts, milk, egg, soy or wheat.

Instead of candy, FARE suggests giving away things like glow sticks/bracelets/necklaces, bubbles, bouncy balls, coins, spider rings, vampire fangs, stickers, or any Halloween-themed novelty toys.

If you participate, you can actually add your house to FARE's map so other families know where go bring their child.
