    Wow that is so sad.
    I always cater for any allergies that I know of.

    Of course. Can and have catered for many of my kids friends who have allergies. DD has in her class, two dairy, one egg, one gluten and one nut (peanuts and cashews). DS1 has one friend with an egg allergy.

    Absolutely, and we have for vegan and vegetarian guests we have invited for bbq gatherings. I haven't come across people yet with allergies, but if i was made aware of them then i would definitely accommodate. We were a vegan family for about a year, and while we never expected it done for us, it was always so lovely when our friends would offer to make veggie burgers for us.

    Without wanting to insult anyone here if they have done different, i personally would feel very uncomfortable and guilty if a guests had to bring their own food... geeze i can remember one BBQ we held, we weren't aware any vegetarians were going to come along to that particular one, but a friend brought along her vegetarian sister that we hadn't met and i felt so bad there was just meat and salads served that time; that I went to the shops and bought some veggie burgers for her and cooked them up. She told me not to stress. I guess im just a bit funny like that.

    I hate supplying food at kids party's.. You end up throwing most of it away such a waste

    Yes we always do. We now buy ice cream cakes (one particular brand can't remember) because our friends child is allergic to egg but can eat this particular ice cream cake. We always do particular meats on the BBQ to cater and make sure there are plenty of options for non meat eaters too. It's two parties a year (one for each child) that I'm able to cater for and try to make sure everyone is accommodated.

    Yep this! I would always cater for allergies and dietary requirements as I would hate for a kid to feel left out and it's not hard to google a few recipes!
    We were also vegan for a while and before that vegetarian and people always made sure there was suitable food for us (even though I always said not to worry as we would bring our own) I had a friend ask me for a cake recipe so my daughter wouldn't miss out at her daughters birthday. And at her birthday she was having all different soups and went our of her way to find ones that I could eat. And if I went to a party and the people didn't know we were vegan they always felt so bad and said they would have made something for us had they known.

    I keep dairy free birthday cake in the freezer so DD never misses out on birthday cake at a party...and we take our own food.

    I know there are a few that say they cater to food allergies...but, it isn't worth the risk to be honest. We eat what we can...and have lots of back ups in case.


    I don't see how it is a big deal...even if i don't go to a party i would still feed my kids...how does that make it expensive to attend...taking food you would feed your kids??

    My DD1 has a little girl in her class with an egg allergy (I didn't know), I made cupcakes for DD1 to take to school for her birthday. We were about to leave for school when I saw DD1 making a "goodie" bag from leftover party lollies, when I asked her what she was doing she told me it was for the little girl who can never have the birthday cakes
