View Full Version : child with peanut allergy coming to dd party
Just wondering if anyone can help me. My daughter is having her 9th birthday party on Saturday, and she has a friend coming who is anaphylacatic to peanuts.
Her mother will be staying, thank goodness, as I would be very stressed otherwise, as I have had no experience with this condition.
I would like to know what kinds of treats she would be able to have. I meant to ask her mother when she phoned, but forgot, and I don't have her phone number. I know she can eat marshmallows. Can she eat other lollies that don't have peanut warnings on them.
I would appreciate any advice, as I don't want her to go home without a party bag. Maybe she could just have novelties in it.
We are having a birthday cake from Baskin Robbins. I suppose she couldn't eat this?
My daughter is anaphylaxic too but to ant bites.
As for penuts, you really need to ask the parent what kind/s of nuts etc as some can just be allergic to one kind and others are fine or it could be all traces of nuts and oils etc.
Why not have an icecream cake instead?
As for the party bags, I would ask the parent what kind sweets etc she usually eats.
I think it is great you are willing to include her in, Olivia does miss out on things cos of her allergy :crying:
I know this was agess ago now but just wandering what you ended up doing?:idea:
Yeah I was going to ask too. My daughter has a bad reaction tomatoes which I have to be really careful with as she gets really really bad horrible acid burn rash from it on her bum
We have a family friend that is allergic to peanuts and so I just make sure that everything is peanut free except the birthday cake and make her a little cupcake of her own. Its not hard once you are used to it but it does take a bit of getting used to. I usually serve fruit kebabs on toothpicks for little people, sandwiches with fillings that I have made myself, sausage rolls that I have made myself, pizza toppings on crumpets, chocolate cupcakes made from scratch (cocoa doesnt have peanuts but most manufactured chocolate does) Kinnerton chocolate is peanut free. Old fashioned (boiled) lollies, marshmallows, lolly pops, wurthers toffees, sours, you really just have to check on the back of the packet and go to specialist lolly shops. When I make lolly bags for my kids parties now because of all the allergies not just peanuts I have opted for a novelty bag with a balloon, a blower, for girls a novelty pen and small note book, a hair clip etc and then usually just put one large round lolly pop. One of the mums thanked me once for not sending her child home with abag full of lollies, which I thought was really lovely for her to say. The novelties dont need to be expensive just use your imagination places like the two dollar shops are great for things like that Hope this helps and have a great party:party:
:thumbsup: thankyou for the ideas on parties i have been racking my brain on what to do for ds1's 2nd bday in april:laughing:
