How freaking selfish can you be? Who cares if your child misses out on peanut butter if it means another child is safe for the day.Originally Posted by Kimberleygal1
Another thing that bugs me is not being able to send anything re peanuts because of allergies. Yes I do get it that some kids may have allergies but why should my child miss out on a peanut butter sandwich which he loves because another kid may have an allergy. Bugs the crap outs me!

sweetseven was she anaphilactic to wheat? There's a vast difference between an intolerance, an allergy which willl cause hives and a child stopping breathing altogether from coming into contact with food.
If she is anaphilactic, I agree, she should've been kept WELL away from other kids and been allowed to snack on nuts while being kept safe from other children's wheat.
I guess the problem with wheat is it'd be SO difficult to ban an entire classroom wheras nuts are a snack, sandwiches tend to be the meal of choice for school.

Oh dear god....! I must reconsider my selfish desire to have my son alive (who is anaphylactic to nuts) so the poor poor children of this world can have their beloved peanut butter!
You never ever cease to amaze me with your self righteous, self entitled dribble.
People like YOU bug the cr@p out of ME!

However there was no on-display information about the severity of her allergy. Whereas out of the three children with a nut allergy there was one on-display information sheet with a photograph and an explanation about a severe allergy to peanuts and that she had an epi-pen in her schoolbag and another in the teachers draw.
Note however, the only child with the on-display allergy information was only allergic to peanuts, not other nuts. The previous year the child with the on-display peanut allergy information had been the only child with an allergy in the class and only peanuts were banned, with nuttella being suggested as an alternative. This year there were two more children with nut allergies (one of which was all nuts - but obviously not serious enough for an on-display information sheet with his photo) which is why all nuts were banned.

FTR my child can eat peanuts and being able to send her to school with some peanut butter on her sandwich or corn cruskits would be a great option. But there is one child at her school who is anaphylactic to peanuts so it is banned. It can get tricky sending my DD off to school with enough healthy food for the day...she's anaphylactic to tree nuts (which aren't banned due to the stupid P&C), dairy and eggs. None of these foods are banned in the school due to the fact that parents would find it way to difficult. However, I am lucky that DD1 won't go in to anaphylactic shock unless she consumes one of these foods so there is a strict 'no sharing' policy in place at the school (most schools do this I believe) and if they have a party in class with foods DD1 can't have the kids have to sit at the tables to eat, they must wash their hands and mouth after they've eaten and then all the tables get wiped down straight away. My DD1 is in year 1 and last term one of the girls in her class touched DD1's food (claiming she wanted to eat it and grabbed it off DD1) and she was sent to the school prinicipal. So I am lucky that DD1's allergies are taken so seriously and I'm extremely lucky that the parents of her friends have decided to just not send their kids to school with any nut products to help remove the risk to my DD. They understand that I love my child just as much as they love theirs and that my child has a right to go to school and come home alive. It absolutely floors me that, with all the education on knowledge there is on the seriousness of food allergies these days, that people can still be so selfish as to get upset that their child is restricted from eating a certain type of food between school hours.
FOBS I love what you posted...there was so much that I deleted out of mine knowing I'd get a life time ban from it, reading that made me beyond furious too.

We have no nut policy at out school of over 600 kids so I have to rely on DS being extremely cautious. At the start of each year a note is sent on making parents aware that there is a severe allergy in the class and it it up to their discretion as to what they put in their kids lunchbox.
Lucky for us we have a great group of parents that are very happy to avoid a tragic situation and happy for their kids to wait until they are home to have nut products..
