Child not invited to classmate's party due to food allergy 

A mother is furious after her child was not invited to a classmate's party due to food allergies. 
She claims another parent had worries regarding accommodating the allergies, but despite assurances that she didn't need to, it was "used as an excuse." 
The mother went to the Am I Being Unreasonable? forum on the well-known parenting website Mumsnet to explain what had happened. Using the username AIBRU to post, she wrote: "She had told me her child had a birthday coming up and that she didn't know how to navigate the food allergies." 
"I explained that we never expect people to cater to it and always make sure we bring alternatives. When she mentioned again 'still, it must be so tough', I said it wasn't. It isn't at all, my child has now been to loads of parties and my child has never had to eat the food we've taken with." 
The mum went on to say "My child is the only child of their gender not invited to the party, which now turns out to be in a party venue (another parent told me this). We have never had a party venue charge more or say they could not cater for allergies." 
"We've never even been to a restaurant who could not cater for my child. I'm annoyed, not necessarily that my child is the only one who's not going but that they've clearly used this as an excuse." 
A lot of parents responded to her post with sympathy. 
Luredbyapomegranate commented: "How weird. I would be fairly tempted to ring up and say what’s going on?" 
Fansandblankets wrote: "Ah that’s rubbish. My son had two friends with nut allergies. They came to all our parties and the parents just left epi pens with me." 
BeatriceFranklin asked: "Do you know for sure your child isn’t invited due to food allergy? It’s odd your child hasn’t been invited when you’ve already explained that you normally bring your own food to parties." 
BirminghamNewStreet posted: "That's tough, as a mum of a child with a serious nut allergy I can empathise but you're going to have to rise above it. No way should you have it out with the party mum. She'd go down in my mental black book as an ignoramus." 
ThrowAwayOne added: "Ah this sucks, my son has a food allergy too and unfortunately this does happen. The kids are all actually very good with him and would ask if it's ok to eat certain foods around him but the adults, I've found, just have no patience for it and would rather just not invite him."
