This is total crapola. As I wrote earlier today, my son started kindergarten today, and he brought a note home telling students(really the parents) that students in this class are not allowed to bring in any foods that are made from nut products, because 2 kids in his class are allergic to them. This includes peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
Well you know what? That the sandwich my kids likes and there is no reason he shouldn’t be able to bring it for lunch.
We were actually made aware before school even started about the kids with the allergies and they asked that no one bring class snacks with nuts in the ingredients, and I can understand this, that’s fine. But we were even told at the open house that individual lunches would be fine to have peanut butter. If the school has a problem with what my kids brings to eat they should just let him eat school hot lunches free of charge for the year.
