Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

MAM-mom ·
Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.
