Baking for school kids never used to be this hard!

I need some recipes/ideas for treats to make that avoid a host of allergens so that I can make treats for my kid's school as well as for my allergic friends. The problem is coming up with something that actually doesn't hit any of the many allergies. Please help!

So I have a friend who is allergic to corn, which was ok, with a a little preplanning I could make all kinds of things for her. But then she found out that she's also apparently sensitive to gluten and needs to try to cut that out. And while I can avoid corn, gluten is killing me. On top of that, my son's school has a ridiculous level of allergies, so that any treats brought in have to be corn, gluten, dairy, and nut free, and can also not include pineapple. For valentines day I ended up making strawberry meringues dipped in chocolate, which seemed to work. However, I'd like to have something more than meringues (though I'll take more meringue recipes too!) that I can make, especially as we have birthdays coming up! I know pavlovas are another similar option, and I love them, but I like variety.
Hit me with your best either corn/gluten free or corn/gluten/dairy/nut free recipes!
