Your child will do just fine with out orly at school,
The child anaphalactic to nuts has a high chance of not being fine.
There is a very wide variety of spreads and snacks that do not contain nuts.

what im getting at is several people in this thread jumping down the persons throat because she doesnt understand, imo, just how easily a child can pick up traces of peanut butter and have a potentially fatal reaction to it.
you said all i needed was a bit of education. how about doing that for the pp in a nice way? so maybe she will understand the why most places are nut free instead of attacking her.
back to topic please (cant seem to get the little emoticon up for that!)

I allowed DS to have sweet williams spread which tastes and looks like nutella during vacation care as a treat. He had to eat it elsewhere and the teachers spoke to me after because they were convinced it was nutella. I was just glad they take the allergies seriously enough because, as we know, there are parents out there who insist on sending high-allergen foods because they are either unaware or don't care about the consequences for the allergic child.
I seriously could imagine some bogan sending peanut butter/nutella and saying it's something else.

The poster said that she wasn't ALLOWED to pack peanut butter sandwiches because of a nut policy... soooo wouldn't that be education enough to put two and to together and realise that your child's desire for peanut butter could have tragic and fatal consequences?
ie - "Wow, we aren't allowed to have nut products at kinder/school etc because of a nut allergy, jeepers it MUST be life threatening and serious for them to enforce such a rule.. I'll gladly adhere to it as my child's love for PB is irrelevant when we we are talking about a potential fatal reaction"
I think a bit of common sense isn't to much to ask.

Believe me it can be tricky when you have to find gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian food for a low-weight picky eater who is allergic to tomatoes, but the range is fantastic and we have never had a problem with banana muffins or pikelets or anything being sent home except when a teacher (somehow) thought the shortbread had nuts in it.

Ok.. Last I checked this post was NOT about allergies.. There are PLENTY of threads regarding that. As the PP why doesn't everyone get back to topic?
