    Default Sugar free at birthday parties?

    What do you think? If your choice is to keep your child sugar free, is it okay to enforce it at birthday parties while the others kids are allowed sugary treats?

    If thats what you want your child to do why not. Each to their own.

    I think even that dude who sparked this whole sugar free trend said "party food is for parties". I cannot imagine how it could be enforced without making the child feel singled out.

    See, that's what thinking Benji. There was a kid at a party today and the mum brought him food from home that was sugar free. I just thought, come on, let him have a bit of fun! But, just wondered if I was on my own in thinking that.

    I think it's not going to kill anyone if you eat the food prepared at a party.

    That's what I think.

    Maybe he is diabetic or on a fail safe diet or allergic. There are plenty of medical reason why he may not be allowed sugar. As a mum of a sn child you don't always want to tell every tom d1ck and harry about your child issues.

    Sugar gives my DD a tummy ache, makes her extremely aggressive and keeps her awake. If there was a way I could stop her from eating sugar at birthday parties I would, absolutely. I'm not strong enough though...

    Sure why not? Theres more to a party than food and there's no reason why kids won't have fun regardless of it. They're probably too busy having fun to eat much anyway!

    I have found some great sugar-free recipes lately, but I'm definitely not a sugar-free addict and DS isn't diabetic or anything so I'm happy for him to go for his life and eat everything at parties, but that doesn't mean I think all parents should be. They are the parent not me! I wouldn't judge them.
