    Default Preschool food policies

    Luckily we are free to send nuts and eggs to our kindy/school as I would really struggle with sending nice healthy lunches with a variety of foods while having to avoid nuts everyday.

    Our school is pretty strict with everything else though, no packaged food at all (including tubs of yoghurt), no chocolate even if in a homemade muffin etc...

    Also no white bread. Which I agree with, but sometimes if I am at the supermarket late at night there is nothing else left!
    So then I have to send wholegrain crackers or something. A bit annoying.

    I am alive due to the fast action of one of my friends mums who got me to hospital fast. My allergy developed in my early teens, before that I could eat Nutella by the spoonful.

    I replied to this post early in the piece and have not had a chance to reply. The response in relation to i will send my child with any food despite a guideline the school has presented is ludicrous. Seriously insane. I would like that member to maintain her status in this thread an try and defend the comments made. I agree the pressure of our educators to be parents and a controlling body of their students food intake is another expectation that is not warranted. Come join a lovely rural school where nothing is overlooked yet is the best place to be.

I am a person with a severe nut allergy. I can have a reaction thru contact, taste or in the case of hazelnuts, smell. Last allergic reaction I had was a result of someone deciding to test my allergy and give me nuts. I ended up in cardiac arrest at local hospital getting zapped because of someone like you.
    Omgoodness how scary for you.

    Cant believe anyone could do that. Test your allergy!?? How bloomin stupid. Gah. Glad ur okay

    We can send nuts to school,

    but not kindy.

    I think it's fair enough. In school kids are told not to share and they generally have an idea about what they can and can't eat personally. In kindy that's not the case.

    Our preschool is a bit weird though. We're not allowed to send popcorn, but we can send sultanas. We're not allowed to send 100% juice, but we are allowed to send flavoured milk (which contains heaps of sugar)..

    And yet the staff sit around eating Red Rooster..... go figure.

    What? Why not popcorn? It's corn!
    I send air-popped corn with absolutely nothing on it.
    It's great snack.

    If you become involved in policy review and development - you can challenge ridiculous rules around food.

    Might I add, I know nuts are a healthy food but we MUST be wary giving them to our young children, my cousin chocked on an almond at 4 years of age. She was flown by flying doctor from from Broken Hill to Adelaide at a seriously low altitude to save her life. It got lodged in her lung.
