Quote:The reasons are simple, peanut allergies are very common and most reactions are very violent.
I've never heard peanut allergies were anything but exteremly rare. When I talked to my pediatrician about it for my sons she said they'd never had a kid in their practice so far who had a real peanut allergy, but to not give them peanut butter before age 2. She said it was an urban myth.

And for those discussing the Cupcake Queens in the schools forum, here's a comment to further illustrate exactly what you've been saying about the intractability of the cupcake celebrations:
We are a healthy snack family and always provide healthy snacks when it is our turn on the snack roster be that for school, soccer or Sunday School. However, the whole no cupcakes for birthdays is a bit much for me. Singing happy birthday around the carrots and dip is just plain odd. I think like everything else people get extreme and then the idea loses meaning.
