Wellfie Wednesday Tip #122: The Teal Pumpkin

Happy Wellfie Wednesday! And Happy Halloween!! This week’s post is brought to you by Patrick (@TheFuelPhysio) and no it does not mention the giving of apples or oranges instead of candy this evening. I for one have had my fair share of candy these past few days, so I’m not going to say people can’t indulge just a little.

Today’s post is about the Teal Pumpkin Project®, which “is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids”! The initiative “encourages people to place a teal pumpkin in front of their home to show they have non-food treats available for children with food allergies and medically-necessary dietary restrictions.” Check out their site for more information on food allergens, but also for some other great resources, like Ideas for Non-Treat Foods!

If your kids have food allergies, be on the look out for teal pumpkins! And if you’re handing out candy, think of supporting this cause. Our family has glow-sticks ready to roll just in case! And we ended up not painting a pumpkin, but simply having a flyer posted.

Thanks for all of the support, be sure to post your pictures this week and tag the WW crew members in your post (@TheFuelPhysio@Eric_in_AmERICa@FreestylePhysio@DianaKlatt) and keep the wave of healthy change going!
