My daughter’s friends mom had gotten something separate, that she knew did not have peanuts, since shop said that they could not gaurantee all treats were peanut free. Thought this was very touching gesture, even though my daughter was oblivious to it!

i have been very lucky over the years. i did a lot of scouting and the other leaders made a point off organizing the food etc around both myself and several of the kids who also had food allergies...
and friends were also really good...
I even had a friend inform me her husband had changed hi usual deodorant to a roll on with no chemicals etc. so that it didnt cause me any problems whilst we were doing camps etc... an amazing guy and his wife also one of my friends is also a very understanding and caring wife...

SueFry,

I found that preparing food and snacks in advance makes it easier to find a sitter. I make dinner in advance for the sitter and daughter so that I don't have to worry. I also make it clear that no food can be brought into the house.

Erica you can have a cake. You have to make it yourself tho lol. I make my son a cake using gf free flour, egg replacer and dairy free icing.

My son can't eat dairy, egg, wheat, gluten, white fish and shell fish. My friends lil girl can't eat dairy and soya so I make it for both. I'm not brilliant, just make basic vanilla cake, dairy free butter icing then use butterflies made from sugar paper to decorate.
