Halloween is just around the corner, that means kids going around towns and trick or treating.

A campaign called Food Allergy Research and Education have been setting teal pumpkins at houses to show they know about food allergies says U of I Extension Nutrition and Wellness Educator Caitlin Mellendorf.

Kids will still be able to get some items from trick or treating said Mellendorf.

The FARE campaign is a way to let all kids enjoy Halloween, and not worry about allergies from candy. If you have questions about the nutrition and wellness visit the U of I extenstion website at web.extension.illinois.edu/dmp/ or contacting your U of I Extension office.
