    I saw the pic of that child who had a severe reaction to peanuts on her first day of school this year. I was completely appalled at the amount of comments from parents saying they shouldn't be inconvenienced by kids with a nut allergy and should segregated or home schooled.

    I think if there are kids that may die from nuts, then schools should def be nut free. It's not that difficult to pack a different lunch. It must be terrifying having a child with a severe allergy.

It's reassuring that nobody has said anything like that here....

    Yet.... -.-

    I wonder how the parents would react when they ignore the no nut policy and send their kids to school with peanut butter, one of their kids friends holds their hand and have a nut allergy and subsequently die. And then their kids start blaming themselves for killing their friend...

    Honestly from what I can tell... They're the type of people who would then lay the blame on someone else. Like the parents of the child who died for sending their child to school, or the school for not isolating the child with the allergy. They obviously have little regard for anyone else! I've seen some disgusting comments today

    It wouldn't change the childs mindset. The poor thing will still blame themselves for their friend dying and have to carry that for years, or until their parents pay enough attention and pull their heads out of their butts and get them proper help.

    Agree.
    It's not going to kill me or my DD if she doesn't have nuts or nut products in her lunch. It will be a minor inconvenience but that is all.
    It very well may kill or make someone else's child seriously unwell.
    To me the inconvenience is well outweighed by the potential risk.

    Yes it's a pain in the **** being nut free - but not that much of a pain that I would whinge and send nuts anyways . It's nuts it's not the end of the world if you can't have them for 6 hours a day .

    Blanket ban. If it keeps another child safe then of course I'm all for it. I would expect the same level of decency and understanding if it were my child with the allergies. No brainer.

    Yep, us too. Nuts are an essential part of our vegan diet but there is no way I would knowingly send my child anywhere with food that could cause someone's death.
