Currently, food allergic children are protected by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Management Act, which was signed into law January 4, 2011. Or are they?


I, as a mom with a child allergic to something else, wish we could move past the peanut :banghead :banghead

As the mother of a peanut allergic child, I also do not think schools should be nut free. I maintain education is the only way to help our children live in the real world with their allergy. Age-appropriate of course. I am much more in favour of a no food sharing policy and for teachers to support parents in the "only food from home" rule many of us use.

I don't think you can make schools nut free. I think schools should strive to be allergy aware.

How can they be nut free when they have parent/teacher interviews and Open House? :freak :rofl
