  • Umm read Brandi's post closer
    you cannot send any baked goods to school for fear of peanut cross contamination and no "dessert" at all in their lunches
    It is not just ONE item they are restricting. Practially everything I buy says "made on machinery with peanuts or nuts".
Thank you 2babygirls!

  • I'm guessing it is different at DH's school since it is older children but they have 3 severely allergic students this year and what they have is a peanut free table. No child with any peanuts or nut products may sit at this table. The allergic child can ask any other child to sit with him/her but obviously that child can't pack peanuts.

    I think it is a nice compromise.

    I am guessing the Nutella will be an issue. Sorry to say that. If our school did the nut ban I wouldn't know what to feed my kids. They eat NO meat.

    I am thinking that the rules are so strict at the preschool level because the kids aren't able to take much responsibility for their condition at this age nor can other students understand the allergy.

    My heart really goes out to parents and kids with severe allergies. It isn't as easy as "don't eat nuts". I also feel for you Jeanne. God knows I know what it is like to have a kid with "issues" and a need for things just a certain way at times.
Thank you Patience!

  • I'm okay with the inconvienence. Sensitvities are one thing but for kid's with true severe allergies it can be life or death. If keeping one child safe means I have to watch what goes in DS's lunchbox, I feel like that's the least I can do. Once you've seen a kid in anaphylactic shock it gives you a more compassionate perspective.
Thank you alb526!

  • My kids school is peanut free (primary to grade 9) and just this year dd's HS became peanut free as well. It's VERY hard to pack lunches for the kids because all 3 little ones LOVE peanut butter and we go through mega containers of it.
    I've never sent them to school with Nutella because I just assumed it would be part of the ban.

  • Oh and I meant to say that the peanut free table is an excellent idea.
    I wonder why more schools don't have this?
