The Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center Pollen and Mold Counter will return February 15, 2022.
Halloween is a fun time for kids of all ages. It’s an opportunity to dress up in costumes, transform your home and yard with spooky decorations, and greet trick or treaters with tasty treats. But, for the 1 in 13 children with food allergies—and many more impacted by food sensitivities—this annual event can pose serious health risks.
That’s why Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center is proud to partner with FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) in promoting their Teal Pumpkin Project and want to encourage our patients and their families to participate in this wonderful program. By displaying one of our signs (available for free at our office locations and downloadable here as a printable PDF) or a teal pumpkin (available at local retailers like Walmart or Target) on your front porch or steps, you let trick or treaters know that in addition to candy, your home offers non-food treats that are safe for everyone.
Together we can help all children have a safe and fun Halloween!
