    If it was me I bring stuff that my kids like (as they can be fussy) even if its something like mini pizzas or even cocktail franks. I am assuming its for the kids anyway so why not have some treats!

    If that woman is all uppity about it being non organic and blah blah blah then she and her kids get to miss out on the good stuff...means more for you!

    But then again if I was wanting to impress I would make THE BEST sweet something....'cause sweet somethings are my fav

    So like....a plate for the kids and a plate for the adults.

    It Easter, go for the sweet stuff, if they don't want their kids to have any well, all the more for you

    I bake heaps but when I offer food to little ones I make sure it's nut free, chocolate free and relatively healthy. I didn't want DS1 to have chocolate when he was really young and I can understand others who don't.

    But there's heaps of stuff that's sweet and yum and is more welcomed like lemon muffins, date cake, banana bread is always a hit...

    I'd do both!
    Take something sweet (mini fruit muffins, banana bread etc) ) then also take a plate of something healthy ( home made tzatiki or hummus with veggie stick dippers) so you are appeasing the fussy parents but take something yummy as a treat for the kids!

    I'd take sweet stuff just to get under her skin more... possibly why I don't have a queue of friends.

    A few girls in our playgroup always bring sweet treats and I really hate it, they're so hard to resist and so delicious, b!tches ay.

    I wouldn't worry too much, parents who are super fussy about their kids diet are used to denying them treats and supplying their own alternative.

    As OP said home baked stuff is pretty close to organicreservative/additive free. Maybe try baking something with fruit using wholemeal flour and instead if refined sugar use maple syrup?

    As yummy as this looks - I would avoid making this to take to a playgroup because of the nut factor.

    (running of to make to take to my wine and nibbles night tomorrow night - thanks for recipe!)

    I think you should take what you feel comfortable making and something you would normally take. It's not as if it's going to be KFC?!

    If they seriously take issue to a sweet treat then I don't think I would want to hang around them. It's totally fine if they don't want their kids to eat it, but to b!tch - well that's just poor form on their behalf!

    Good luck and please let us know what you end up taking!

    ETA - Of course if there's any known allergies that would affect what you make.
