Essential Party Pack (for my young daughters who have allergies)

If your primary school aged children don’t have allergies you can wrap a hastily bought present, get them to scribble a card and you’re good to go to a party! Not so the family with young children with allergies. An allergy kit has to be packed, with written instructions/phone numbers etc. plus detailed information given to the party host (gosh, they must find me annoying!) on how to administer and in what situation.

Then a ‘safe’ packed party tea must be made. I tend to stick to what I presume they’ll be eating: sandwiches, crisps and a cupcake. Although, sometimes the poor girls have to eat a picnic when their friends are tucking into burger and chips or homemade lasagne!

Here’s a usual party pack for us… any allergy friendly party tips gladly received … how do you cope with dietary constraints in a party setting?

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.
