Seriously that is such a rude and ignorant statement. You seriously believe your child going without peanut butter for 6 hours five days a week, is more important than another childs life?
I dont think it is wrong to teach children that once in a while we have to make sacrifices for others.
God forbid your child develops life threatening allergies hopefully for their sake the other parents in their class are more tolerant than you.

When ds1 was at daycare and we had to provide lunches we had a list of packaged foods that weren't allowed. I found it frustrating because we don't give our kids much sugar, we monitor the sugar intake so when a note came home with a handful of sultana's I sent in his lunch box I was quite mad as this would occur less than once a week. I went in there and argued this and told the director that I will decide what my child will or won't eat. I never had a note sent home since!
But on the other hand I can understand because I guess some parents do let their kids eat alot of sugary foods on a daily basis.

This is about preschool, right - not primary school?
So, effectively - your son's right to eat what he likes as versus another child's right to life?
In primary school its a bit different, in kinder/preschool - kids under 5 I think you are being unashamdely self entitled
I hope no child dies because of your actions

My LO is a long way off preschool so not actual policy examples here.
I think there are two quite different issues here.
Firstly, foods being banned for the safety of other students. I'd like to think all parents would have no issue complying with such requests. I'm sure sometimes parents may believe the banning of foods is simply a knee jerk reaction (I'm sure sometimes it is). It is up to the school to clearly explain why such bans are in place to ensure parents don't underestimate the risks.
The second is banning food for nutritional reasons. I would hit the roof if a school was so presumptuous as to send me advice on how to feed my own child. I would be beyond livid if they did not allow my child to eat food I had supplied because it was not deemed healthy enough. It is not a schools place to tell a parent how to feed their child, it is not their role and they are not qualified to make such judgements.
A couple of links for those interested....

I've always been curious why peanut allergies are grouped in with nut allergies when peanuts are a legume
