    this makes perfect sense. The only way the childcare can say it is nut free is because the food is all prepared by them, so they see what goes into it and have a qualified cook who prepares the meals.

    This is fantastic. I should ask my childcare to do this. I must admit when I first sent dd to childcare (not used to packing a lunch box) I was so used to food prepared by old centre. I sent peanut butter!! I felt awful.

    But where do we stop? In all honesty. So many kids have allergies these days. To ANYTHING! I like that I can pack my kids lunch and if anything happens the staff are trained
