question about PA
I wasn't sure where to post this.
There is a little boy on my daughter's after school soccer team that has severe PA.
Team manager has informed us we are going peanut free (this includes items that *may* have peanuts) because he can have a reaction just touching a child who has eaten a peanut product.
We each bring individual snacks for our kids.
Parents stay with their children.
Snacks are eaten outdoors on a hill.
The school bus drops them off at the park, and they literally have 3 or 4 minutes to eat and then start playing.
I usually bring a granola type bar (she likes one with almonds) because she can eat it quickly and while I'm putting on her shoes.
Can a child with PA really have that strong of a reaction? Is the manager going overboard?
I don't mind modifying what my child eats if another childs health is at stake.
I'm concerned that the manager is being overly restrictive so please correct me if I am wrong.
