Sweets for my sweet..
It is not always easy for children (or adults for that matter) with sensitivities and allergies to feel “normal”. A lot of our sense of belonging stems from participation in activities along with our peers, and food plays a huge role in most social gatherings. For children especially, the sense of identity and self-worth is formed hugely based on belonging, and belonging often comes from being able to do what others do, have what others have, and of course eat the same things their friends eat. Lollies are no exception, and although it may sound silly, sweets do play a big role in children’s social sphere. After all, they are a part of almost every social setting where children are involved.
So how do we give our kids lollies that make them feel included, but at the same time keep them safe? Who can we trust? Take a look at this list..

It comes in many shapes and sizes, and every family gives it their own twist. You can bet your bottom dollar you’ll bump into one version or another if you ever visit Norway, know a Norwegian or if you should happen to come across any Norwegian festivity.
Tower Cake looks rather impressive and tastes even better. It is however surprisingly easy to make!
