Children often like to bring in treats on their birthday for their friends to enjoy at home time! At Hall Green Infant School we have a large number of children with complex allergies and many with a range of dietary requirements. Therefore we felt it would help parents, when choosing the treat, to have some guidelines and suggestions as to which treats are acceptable. With the growing understanding and diagnosis of food allergies, we require birthday treats to contain no nuts or traces of nuts. Birthday treats need to be suitable for vegetarians and it is also important that treats are packaged with clearly labelled ingredients. Fun or snack size chocolate bars/biscuits (that conform to the above recommendations) are preferred to sweets and lollipops to minimise risk of accidents or choking.
Below is a list of birthday treats that are acceptable at school:
N.B treats should be funsize
Cadbury's Dairy Milk
Milky Bar Buttons
Kit Kat Biscuits
