I'm nut free, are you? The climax of a birthday party may well be the presentation of the cake and an off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday," but for parents of kids with food allergies, the moment is a reminder that it's time to pull out an alternative treat for their tots.
With more than 3 million US kids suffering from food allergies, it's safe to assume that at least one of your lil one's friends must watch what she eats. As the parent of a tot with a tree nut allergy, I am overly cautious of the food I serve at parties, but assume that others aren't as aware when we attend someone else's fete. My bag is usually packed with snacks and a nut-free cupcake. If you know a party goer has a food allergy, do you accommodate them?
