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.
