Chalk Talk: How to Have a "Food-Allergy Friendly" Elementary School Party
With more and more students developing food allergies, it is more important than ever to ensure that school parties are food allergy friendly. When schools do not respect the danger of food allergies, children can be put at risk and they can often feel left out by their friends and teachers. There are many safe foods for children with common food allergies from peanuts, milk, and eggs. Some of the safe snacks for school parties include cut fruit and vegetables, graham crackers, red licorice, lollipops, Smarties, and Oreo cookies (not the peanut butter flavor). Almost all store-bought baked goods, like cupcakes, are not safe for children with food allergies. Another excellent option for school parties are prizes like pencils, erasers, and mini-note books. It is important to make all children feel welcome and comfortable during special events like school parties.
