Just curious about what other families do/ think. Do you dictate what your child can and cant eat when I comes to birthdays at daycare, for example, cupcakes with blue icing? We try to eat healthy majority of the time, but I have just gone against everything in me and made 'frozen' themed cupcakes! So much sugar and butter and blue icing! Aarrrrhggggghh :P

Nope, couldn't care less what goodies get brought in for Birthday's. It all sounds great to me 😊 Yummy, I'm sure they will be a hit!!
My DD's teacher made blue pankcakes with them so obviously she doesn't care either haha. Didn't bother me but I'm sure it annoyed some other parents.

I work in childcare and most parents bring in cakes with icing. Don't stress, it's a special treat and doesn't happen every day. The kids wear off the sugar before they go home anyway haha.

I don't dictate what they can have. I took vanilla cupcakes with purple buttercream icing last year for DDs birthday .

Pressed send too early - DS is hopefully starting soon and I might be a bit more strict with him (nursery room). But from what they told me about the makeup of the class, he would be the next to have a birthday anyhow.

I take in cakes with icing. But I first check that there are no gluten/lactose etc intolerances or I cater to that.

DS daycare asks that you take in an ice cream cake when it's your childs birthday, or if you take a cake you made write down all the ingredients, which is what i do for DS as he has a dairy allergy.
One week they had ice cream cake nearly every day i don't mind, it's not me that has to deal with runny poo, but they have lactose free ice cream for him and a couple of other kids with allergies now which makes it easier!

The kindy that we were hoping to send DD to when she's old enough asks that you send along half a watermelon, so they can make up a "watermelon cake" when a kid has a birthday there. I personally wouldn't have a problem if we were going somewhere where cake was allowed on birthdays though.
