Peanut allergy vs. low blood sugar
I am in the middle of a battle at school over a mother's insistence that her daughter be allowed to eat peanut butter in the classroom because of low blood sugar. Although the class has a peanut ban, she feels that her daughter's low blood sugar is "just as serious" as my daughter's peanut allergy. Although she could choose from a variety of other snacks that would satisfy her daughter's blood sugar, this mom has latched onto peanut butter and has become very vocal that I am insensitive to her daughter's needs when I speak up about the importance of avoidance of all peanut products in the classroom. This same mother has already blocked my daughter from Bridging up to Girl Scout Brownies because in her words "my troop eats peanut butter" and no allowances will be made for my daughters safety even during a Girl Scout meeting. Going to the Girl Scout Council did not help. They said to have separate meetings - hmmmm..."separate but equal" - I thought that was unconstitutional...
