Having been juggling foods since my kids started on the education merry go round, I would never elevate my kids entitlement to have a food they liked to that of a child who must avoid a food in order to stay living.
Over the years we have had it have special diets due to intolerances, we've had to avoid different allergens depending on the very safety of of other children within the class and the whole school community.
I understand that the school is attempting to act in the best interests of all of the kids, but I feel that they are going about it the wrong way.
Really, though, my annoyance at the teachers actions pale in comparison when you consider the life and death implications for kids like FOB's and some people's sense of self entitlement to eat what they want when they want regardless of the potential tragic impact on others.
I will speak to the school, but this has helped me to put my sense of outrage and affront into some real perspective.
