How to feed a bunch of kids with different diet requirements?

My answer would be just give them Nothing! or maybe banana...LOL

Now, I can fully understand how difficult to look after a group of kids with different dietary requirements.

It all began when the childcare that my son goes was organizing a special afternoon tea session for both parents and kids. As parents, we were requested to bring in a food item to share with everyone but the guidelines are : No nuts, No dairy, No eggs!

To minimize uncooked food handling at this warm humid summery weather, I chose to avoid bringing fresh cut fruits. So, all I can think is to make this super simple honey popcorn!

And the interesting part is the childcare rejected my contribution because they said that popcorns are potential choking hazard for toddlers. The ironical part is everyone else brought in cakes and biscuit that do contain dairy product and eggs...as I should have known...

As for the uncooked food like fruits and sushi, it became their food hygiene concern as one of carers was trying to distribute the uncooked food before they go off in the hot sun.

No offense to anyone but I think that it is really too difficult to please everyone with all different individual needs. I should have stick to my original plan of making simple cupcakes and cookies instead of considering too much of these guidelines. Nevertheless, here is my super simple pop corn for kids that are allergy to nuts, dairy and eggs...

1/2 cup corn popped in 3 tbsp of canola oil in a hot saucepan and drizzle the pop corn with fresh honey

Enjoy.
