The Teal Pumpkin Project was created by a mom who didn't want kids with food allergies to feel left out on Halloween.

If you see a teal pumpkin while out trick or treating on Halloween this year, your eyes are not playing a trick on you.

Trick-or-treaters are welcome to pop into city hall before doors close Wednesday night to pick up traditional treats - or things like spooky pencils and erasers.

Food Allergy Canada's Director of Advocacy Beatrice Povolo, said participating in the shine a teal light campaign is a great way for people to show their support for children who have food allergies.

"About 1 in 13 children in the U.S. has a food allergy, so we've got a lot of kids who can't participate in Trick or Treating." said Registered Dietitian Chrissy Watters, who works for Hy-Vee.

Hy-Vee is now selling $1 gifts and teal pumpkins, hoping that more people will participate in this project.

With Halloween less than a day away, many are preparing for the holiday in more ways than one - including goodies for eager trick-or-treaters.

According to FARE, there are a few considerations when choosing which non-food items to hand out.

People can download signs, and find allergy-safe houses in their area, on the Teal Pumpkin Project website.

Traditionally, Halloween decorations are black and orange, occasionally some purple and lime green to mix it up, but now the color teal is getting added to the list.
