Gemma: I think we should have a bake sale. We’ll raise lots of money for our school.
Sebastian: A bake sale sounds good, but it’s too much trouble.
Gemma: How much trouble can it be to bake a few cookies and cakes?
Sebastian: It’s not as simple as that. We have to be careful selling baked goods to people with dietary restrictions.
Gemma: Like what?
Sebastian: Some people have ethical concerns. Vegans, for example, don’t want any animal products in their food.
Gemma: Like eggs and milk?
Sebastian: That’s right. And other people have medical problems or conditions. Diabetics, for instance, want their baked goods made with sugar substitutes, and people who are lactose intolerant want dairy substitutes.
Gemma: No sugar? No dairy?
Sebastian: And there is a whole slew of allergies to consider, like people who have celiac disease, those who can’t eat gluten, and those who are allergic to wheat or peanuts.
Gemma: Wow, when did life get so complicated? How about a rummage sale instead?
Sebastian: Good idea.
