There was kids with serious allergies - one girl was severely allergic to milk (even topically) and two kids with severe peanut allergies, plus my DD who has a very serious soy allergy. The others however, were more or less "intollerant" to those other foods rather than serious allergies. The kid allergic to bananas was a true allergy, but not anaphylactic.
I'm all for caution and taking allergies seriously, but that was total overkill IMO.

Our school has a no nut and no egg policy (in baking is fine, just no hard boiled eggs).
DD2's kindy has a no nut and no egg policy as well, and also no processed or packaged food, or baked treats like pikelets, muffins etc.

There is no policy at DS's school. I know there's a few kids who have severe peanut allergies, so I don't send anything with nuts. I'd hate to be the cause of a reaction, however indirectly.

At DS kindy we have a nut ban and also things that may contain nuts like muesli bars (DS has a severe cashew and pistachio allergy). If there is a child with an egg allergy or any other foods there will be a ban on them too. Currently there are no children with egg allergies so they can bring eggs in (as long as they are fully cooked)
I can understand banning foods which cause severe allergic reactions especially anaphylaxis but I don't think foods that are intolerances should be banned, otherwise we are literally left with nothing to bring in?
What is happening these days with allergies. I remember at school it was so rare to have anyone allergic to foods? It's sad seeing our kids react to so many natural foods now
