Kids with allergies will often carry teal containers to indicate they have an allergy, but those distributing candy can either ask trick-or-treaters if they have any food allergies, or give every visitor a choice of which treat they'd like: candy or a non-food item. You put a teal-colored pumpkin on your porch to let kids know you have something to offer them other than potentially allergy-containing food. "I saw that you have a teal pumpkin, I'm here for the non-food treats, 'you can pull that out that bowl for that child".

Gregory says there are numerous alternatives for trick-or-treaters.
