This article discussed “the teal pumpkin project” and what it is essentially advocating for. The teal pumpkin project encourages households to provide non-food items, such as little toys, in addition to keeping your candy in a separate bowl due to many children being allergic to certain candy. Inclusivity is the main purpose of this movement. Teal pumpkins are placed in front of houses so children can easily identify which residencies to trick or treat at. 

I personally think this is a great idea and worth advocating for. I think more people should make an effort to insure the safety of children. I was surprised with the fact that one out of every thirteen American children lives with a food allergy. I think more people should know about this.

Do you think this cause is important?
