Have you heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project®? Begun in the United States and supported here by Allergy Québec under the name Ma Citrouille Turquoise, this movement encourages neighbours to place a teal-coloured pumpkin in front of their home to show they’re offering kids non-food treats on Halloween.
Good to know!
In partnership with Allergies Québec, Uniprix is now offering a selection of safe products—food and other treats—for kids with allergies. Uniprix is the first and only banner to officially participate in this health initiative.
A few facts about food allergies
Food allergies are an exaggerated immune reaction to the ingestion of an allergen (peanuts, nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, seafood, etc.). This health concern is anything but trivial. On the contrary! It can result in anaphylactic shock and, if it a reaction goes unchecked, it can even cause death.
Living with a food allergy—and the label checking and risks of cross contamination, among other concerns—is a daily challenge. So let’s stand together! Let’s make sure our neighbourhood kids have a great Halloween by offering them worry-free treats. Don’t forget to set out your teal pumpkin!
Halloween treats: Non-food ideas
Your family pharmacist can answer your food-allergy questions and, if necessary, show you how to use an epinephrine auto-injector (e.g. EpiPen). Don’t hesitate to ask: he or she is a reliable and accessible resource!
