My daughters Sunday school Christmas party is tomorrow. She has a severe peanut allergy and with her currant medical condition she doesn't need to get sick. Would it be tacky of me to send her with a bag or carrots and celery? (Her all time favorite) and send a note to her Sunday school teach to not feed her any snack foods during the party?

Why not just send a few snacks for the class and tell her to stick to those? She shouldn't be left out

I don't think there is anything wrong with that. Does she also know not to eat other things?

I'd just let her teachers know of the severity of her peanut allergy and ask that they be aware of it that day. I'd bring her own favorite snack just in case as well. But you know your own daughter best so do what you think is best for her

She's 2 lol I can't go because my 1 year old is super sick. The pastors wife assured me they'd take good care of her (being picked up in church van) but she's still at that age that she eats everything in sight

I would send a yummy snack that everyone could eat so that she doesn't feel singled out. Definitely send a note to the teachers!!!

Oh, lol! I honestly wouldn't send her, if it were me.

I think a two year old is too young to go without you. You can't count on other people watching her every second, even if they try, with all the other kids there too. Since she isn't old enough to monitor her intake herself, the best bet would be to keep her home.

Being as she is only 2 I would keep her home.  Everyone there wants to enjoy the party.  Who can with having to watch someone else's child?  If she was six and over I would feel different.  Would it not worry you that something could go wrong without your supervision?
