If you're hosting a kids party and you've got party guests attending who have food allergies, there are a number of ways that you can cater for everyone without ruining the party atmosphere.

Here are some tips to get your party off to a great start, and make sure all your little guests have a great time, and that they are able to eat foods that won't make them sick.

Know your allergies



If you know your guests well enough, then you'll already know what their allergies are. However, as kids get older, you might not know all party guests so a simple cover all (if you're providing food) is to simply ask guests to advise you on their RSVP if they have any allergies. Parents of children with food allergies will love you for your thoughtfulness.

Labeling

If you're catering to the masses, then keeping track of what's in each dish or food item can be quite tricky. A good idea is when you are setting up your food buffet, to consider adding labels to the foods. Not only will this tell your guests (or their parents) what food is on offer, but it will highlight certain specifically prepared allergy aware foods .

You could consider some food flags like these ones from Allergy Rider


Some great allergy aware products have been created by Allergy Riders , a company specializing in providing food labels that are just perfect for childrens parties.

Cross Contamination

Provide each child with their own plate to avoid cross contamination of foods between children. You could even label each plate with each childís name if you want to make the plates extra special.
Be mindful of cross contamination when preparing foods, using separate knives and plates etc when preparing different types of food goods.

We donít have any known food allergies in our family at present, but when we catered for my sonís first birthday party we had a little boy attend who had severe dairy intolerance. I made a special birthday cupcake just for him and it made his day. We sent the rest of the batch home with his parents, much to their delight. The mother remarked that this was the first birthday party her child had attended where he was actually able to eat the birthday cake. One small gesture for one giant smile on a kids face made the extra effort all the more worthwhile.
