cupcakes/allergies

My daughter birthday is in a few weeks and I got the ok to send cupcakes/treats. I asked if there were any allergies that I needed to be aware of and one of the girls is allergic to peanuts. What can I send that everyone can have including the student with the peanut allergy? I don't want her to be left out. Are regular cupcakes ok? I want everyone to get the same thing so that she doesn't feel singled out. Tia

Check the labels for any type of nuts.

I know most flours and such say on the label that they could have been in contact or are processed in plants with nut products. I don't want to accidently trigger a reaction or send something she can't have

I've heard bad things about nut allergies. My sons are allergic to peanuts too.

Yes. As long as there aren't any nuts in it. So far they get skin reactions from nuts and nothing anaphaletic thank God!

If you are making them, regular cupcakes are fine.  Even store bought bakery ones are usually peanut free.  Maybe fruit cups instead for everyone to enjoy.

I just make regular cup cakes. But my kids have never had someone with a peanut allergy but we have a red food coloring, and strawberry allergy to deal with. I also feel bad for anyone in my sons class because he is allergic to sugar.

 Our school only allows store bought treats. When there has been an allergy the parent of that child has sent a special treat for just them.
