    I completely agree! I don't have a child with nut allergies but can things like a packet of chips that make contain traces set them off too?

    Just out of curiosity I looked at the Nutella website for the ingredients and it says it contains sugar as main ingredient, then vegetable oil then 13% hazelnuts and 1/3 of the fat is saturated - definitely not a healthy choice

    All the schools in my area are 'nut free' and I totally support it. Yes, when the child becomes an adult they will no doubt be exposed to nuts in the shops etc but a child has the right to a safe school environment and I believe it's the community's job to join in protecting them.

    I can't believe that people complain about nut bans. Wow. My sister is anaphylactic to cashews. She only developed the anaphylaxis as an adult but it has really opened my eyes as to how easily she can react. I am a teacher and one thing I can vouch for is that kids are all over eachother. Segregating them while eating is pointless.

    We eat a lot of nuts. Big whoop if they can't take them to school. I just don't get why people get so heated about it. I'd be terrified if my child had a severe allergy. These people need to develop some empathy.

    I agree. People who complain about nut bans clearly haven't seen a person have a severe allergic reaction - a truly awful experience.

    I haven't read all the replies.

    Until this year our school promoted that it was a nut free school, however just this year while they have asked parents to make every effort not to send any foods containing nuts they are not promoting the school as nut free, because they cannot control what parents send in their kids lunch boxes. If a particular class has a child with an allergy to any particular food item, that class is given information on the allergy so parents can be aware. There is a blanket ban on sharing any food. Kids have to wash their hands before and after eating.

    The school recently had an education session conducted by the Royal Children's Hospital anaphylaxis support unit.

    It must be terrifying for a parent with a child who has an allergy to send their child off to school not knowing what other kids lunch boxes contain.

    Our local school and Kindy don't currently have any food bans. They have said that if they have highly allergic children in the future they will look into it. I'm not sure how they would do it at school as it's a P-12 school - do nut bans normally stay in place in high school too? Just thinking that maybe they don't because children are older and more aware of not swapping food etc.

    We had food allergies when my kids were babies which really introduced me to the world of living with food allergies and how scary and challenging it can be. My kids have thankfully outgrown all their food allergies, however I will forever be empathetic to those that live with them on a daily basis. I am more than happy to do my part to protect the children in my community by not sending my children to school with nuts.
