It sounds like the beginning of a joke: take a nut allergic child, a child with celiac, and a vegan child, and what do you get?
The perfect storm. Three kids, three very different needs.
Seriously, though, it is possible to please children with multiple nutiritonal challenges. We had a small birthday party for my daughter, who is severely allergic to nuts. She invited her buddy who has celaic disease, and another one who is a vegan. Unless you knew about Cherrybrook Kitchen, you might be quaking with fear at the thought of how to make a cake that would be safe for all of them.
But Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a line of Nut Free, Gluten Free, and Vegan cake mixes, icing, and cookie mixes. For my girl, I made the Gluten Free Dreams chocolate cake. It was moist and delicious, and a certain crowd pleaser for the preschool set. They didn't know anything about what was missing. The ingredient list is short, with all items listed being actual food items, not chemicals with long names.
So, if you are planning a party for your child, and you have guests coming with one or all of the challenges listed above, try Cherrybrook Kitchen products.
