    I think a small fruit platter is perfect

    Don't take anything, you've been told not to take anything- the host may have something planned and if you bring stuff there will be too much food.

    If it's just a play date definitely bring nothing. I personally hate a bunch of half eaten food left over after a play date.

    When did going to someone's house become such a big deal?

    Parents didn't send anything when a kid came home with us after school. Why is a fruit platter now the normal thing?

    'Mum can so and so come over today/ tomorrow/ next week? '

    'Of course'

    Why the need for food?

    When everything became an occasion for constant eating.

    I would take a small container if cut up fruit (like I would if I was going to the park) but would have a little extra to share with the other kid. I would probably only bring it out if needed.

    Default What to bring when you're told not to bring a thing

    DD has kids over all the time. If someone offered me a fruit platter for their child coming over I'd batten down the hatches and expect the worse.

    I usually grab something from the bakery, a tear and share or hot cross buns this time of year.

    I have a 3 and 1 yo, so our play dates are for the parents as much as the kids- we like to sit and have a cuppa and munch on something while the kids play. The play dates are usually at someone's house as it's easier to contain the chaos that way, and we can relax a little more. I don't like to arrive empty handed and I try to get something that won't spoil immediately if it isn't eaten during the play date
