Sharing a sweet treat on your birthday is great fun, but in an early childhood setting it can be more complicated than simply working out how many pieces you need to cut the cake into.

Common allergies in children include gluten, egg and nuts.
While the most severe allergic reactions can have major implications such as anaphylactic shock, even mild allergies can cause problems.
