It is a familiar scene on Halloween trick-or-treaters excitedly waiting to find out what treats are behind the door.
However, for kids like Nadia LaFond, who lives on Madison's east side and can't wait to dress up as Glinda from "The Wizard of Oz," the thrill can be squashed by her severe allergies to peanuts and tree nuts.
"I'll get hives and I'll have to go to the hospital because i get an allergy attack," said Nadia.
"It's something that we think about every day," said the 6 year old's mother Lori LaFond.
Nadia has learned how to manage her allergies, but on top of being cautious when consuming candy she and her mother even touching packaged candy can be risky.
When Lori heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project. she and her daughter didn't hesitate to take part and decked out the teal.
The Food Allergy Research and Education group, or FARE, has been encouraging the campaign.
