Food-Free Halloween Treats

It’s wonderful to see that Food Allergy Awareness is gaining momentum and that there are so many options for kids with food allergies on Halloween Day. As much as I love to see more allergen friendly candy on the market, there’s still a lot of sugar in there. So I went on a search for food-free Halloween treats.

The Teal Pumpkin Project

“FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids,” FARE.

Nobody is allergic to toy prizes, so providing non-food treats helps to be inclusive of everyone, no matter what food allergies they have. Joining in on the Teal Pumpkin Project is easy to do! Just follow these 4 steps:

  1. Buy non-food trinkets and toys
  2. Either put out a teal pumpkin or print out a poster of one to hang on your house.
  3. Optionally add your address to the Teal Pumpkin Project Map.
  4. Tell your friend how they can participate too.

Food-Free Halloween Treats

Just like the goodies that have existed all these years for birthday party goody bags, there are a growing amount of Halloween themed goodies that are perfect for passing out to trick or treaters.

I suggest having them ready at trick or treating time in a Teal Pumpkin bucket or Teal Pumpkin Tote so when you’re passing out the goodies, kids with food allergies will recognize that you have non-food treats.

Here’s what I found.


Lots of selections here at Target. Most packs were $1-$3 each with varying quantities inside.


A small selection, but you can’t beat the convenience if you’re passing by.

So many great goodies at Amazon, but the crowd favorites seem to be anything that LIGHTS UP or GLOWS in the dark! Check them out below!


Tons to choose from here at Dollartree! Everything’s priced at $1.
