    I've been advised by two separate gp's that Nutella is a good fat because it has the natural hazelnut oils in it.

    I limit the amount of chocolate my children eat but my eldest son has Nutella on bread every morning before school.

    Not saying that I don't support a ban and I certainly don't whinge about not being able to send Nutella sandwiches.

    I am hyper alert about other things with my dd and her health but not allergies as she hasn't shown any allergies but I was curious.

    That makes sense. It does have shizloads of sugar - it's the main ingredient. But I suppose it's no different to jam or honey on toast which I give my kids, so will take of my judgey hat.

    I don't send nuts to school but do send homemade muffins which has egg in, honestly didn't think about that.

    This is another genuine question, when you have a muesli bar that says may contain traces of nuts is that a no no too? It's always confused me.

    I have no issue with a blanket ban, my kids don't know what Nutella even is, they don't have peanut butter or jam (no allergies just too high in sugar) but they do have some honey on weetbix.

    I have a child who is allegic to nuts so i totally agree and i also have another son who is allergic to apples second day back at school the little boy sitting beside him ate an apple they had to stand up and hold the hand of the person they were sitting next too and my son said to the teacher that he was allergic to apples and she said he was lying and when he got home he was sick as and then he told me what happened well i upped the school the next day and they were very apologetic i took in more paperwork that i have to prove this they now know about it and a plan in action.
    They should blanket ban 100% agree.

    If people are really upset about no Nutella surely they can make their own out of Chickpeas and is therefore nut free.
    A bit OT but you have to be careful with chick peas and other similar stuff like baked beans too sometimes with peanut allergies. Chickpeas, baked beans etc. are legumes as are peanuts (they aren't actually 'nuts') my ds has had a reaction to guar gum and slight reaction to baked beans, (not anaphylactic reaction like peanuts though just a rash and hives)

    .
    I wonder that as well, but am guessing they are ok mostly cause most pkt food says may contain traces of nuts.

    Enormous amount of sugar though. Definitely not a "healthy" option. Not saying its terrible to ever have it, but it's kind of like saying cake is good for you because it's got egg in it and eggs are good for you.

    Wtf. I can't believe people believe their right for their kids to eat nuts outweighs another child's right to attend school without the real risk of death due to anaphylaxis.

    I agree with it 100% OP. Nuts do and have killed kids in Australian schools. . It's horrific and very easily managed.

    We ban soft drinks and they don't kill.
