Maybe you should speak to the principle and suggest they insist that the parent have a letter from the family doctor confirming allergies. Our daycare does this, if it does not cause anaphylaxis the food is not banned.
School is the beginning of real life for kids out of their parents watchful, protective eye. I think schools (and kids) would be better off if no sharing was reinforced and clean hands/face after lunch. Any child with a severe allergy would have an epipen on hand if the need arose.
Hmmm, our school have kids with allergies and you are allowed to send the food but you have to wash your hands afterwards. Depends if they are anaphalactic I suppose. Only nuts are banned.
Oh my goodness. We moved to a country school and they are so chill.... I don't pack nuts because our old school didn't want them, but they haven't said or written anything. Perhaps they don't have an anaphylactic kid.
I'm surprised the school is banning all that stuff without a doctor sending in the anaphylaxis plan if it's just mum saying it?
Wait, what do you pack him then? Sorry, I'm just curious, I pack my kids most of the things you mentioned are banned at his school. So I have no idea what you'd pack. Bananas?
No, we don’t thankfully. My son has Coeliacs disease so obviously cannot have gluten, there are two other kids in his class who aren’t allowed gluten, no idea if they are coeliac or not. One of those kids can’t have dairy. There is also another girl not allowed dairy and another kid not allowed eggs. And that is just one class! Despite that, we do not have any bans. Not even nuts are banned. We are asked that if we are bringing something in like Birthday cupcakes to make sure they are nut free but other than that, it is eat what you want.
