Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

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.

Wow, what a great list! I will add it to the paperwork I give out to teachers at our meeting before school starts. I have also found potting soil with lobster shells in it- who knew?

Nice list. However, as a mom of a child with a soy allergy, the recipes should note that most margarines and "vegetable" oils today contain soy, which should be taken in to account if the child in question has a soy allergy.

Sharon! We are glad you found us!! You will find more suggestions for bread on our forums. I posted your question on our main support forum so you can find more suggestions. Here is a link to the post. Feel free to post and introduce yourself. http://community.kidswithfooda...eggs-milk-andamp-soy I believe EnerG makes bread free of your dd's allergens. I have heard good things about the tapioca bread & the rice bread. Melanie

May I post this guide on my blog or would you prefer I post the link? I want to spread the word about your organization as well as inform people directly because I have met so many people who seem to feel as if they have to reinvent the wheel of resources. Thank you for creating these lists.

I am a teacher and have NEVER thought about this until now. My 20 month old has severe egg allergies so researching allergy information has become my new habit. I have printed this list and will share it with his teachers and keep one for my own classroom.

Welcome JWalker2! We are glad you found us. This list is a great thing for teachers. I always share a copy with my son's teachers and I supply a copy for his 504 plan. Teachers are always amazed at the places where food can hide! Be sure and join us over on the Babies, Toddlers & Preschoolers forum. http://community.kidswithfooda...oddlers_preschoolers

This post and all the comments are one of the reasons that KFA has been voted as a TopRated Nonprofit. We are so fortunate for all that you provide and I endeavor to spread the word to help all families with food allergies. We are in this together. Already airlines have made changes since we flew to CA last summer - Delta was quite accommodating to let up pre-board and wipe down our seating area but United gave us a slight hassle until I spoke with a supervisor. It is heartening to learn...
