My DD's daycare has restrictions on the kids taking nuts, eggs, fish/seafood and sesame. How many do you have to work around and does it make it hard?
(This is not intended to make anyone who lives with allergies feel bad. Of course I do not degrudge anyone with a child with an allergy the right to feel secure that their child will be safe at daycare)

How many allergy restrictions at your daycare/school?

Our daycare provides food but I know we have a severe egg allergy at the centre so I'm always careful if I do have to sent something in. For birthdays they've decided that the easiest thing is for parents to bring a loaf of bread and cook makes fairy bread.

DD1s school only has a nut restriction. In her class we apparently shouldn't even be sending things that may contain traces of nuts. I'm pretty sure everything these days may contain traces of nuts, so DD only gets a very basic lunch.

The list of "forbidden foods" at DDs kindergarten was:
I actually kicked up a big fuss about it, i thought they went way over the top with the restrictions. Not all of these are anaphylactic triggers. They were banning foods that caused just a tummy ache in some kids!
They eventually lifted the ban on all but the nuts.

At the last daycare the girls went to there was a boy that was allergic to so much from latex (so no balloons and carers couldn't use gloves for nappy change time)
Any creams or powders for nappy rash
There is a lot more but can't think this late at night. Poor kid was found out to have these allergies at daycare too which scared the daycare teachers when he needed to be rushed to hospital.

DS school is Nut-Free but thats it.
I worked at his school at the after school care and we had lots of different allergies to have to work with (seafood, lactose intolerant, gluten free, no pork, sesame, nuts, eggs, citrus...the list goes on) but it was THAT hard to work around. Sometimes that child was offered something else in place of whatever they couldnt have or we made 2 batches (eg. Fried rice....we made one with no bacon and one with everything)
