What is a peanut free daycare? How peanut free should they be?
My son's daycare claims to be PN free, i am just wondering what that should entail.

I hope this question doesn't sound to idiotic.

My daughter's daycare (in NC) is peanut free and they do no allow any types of nuts into their school. As a matter of fact we had our first "situation" on Friday when one of the moms brought in a cake that said "may contain peanuts & nuts". They made the mom go buy another cake and then they called me. They do not serve any food w/nuts in it...period.

I made an info sheet for all of her teachers that describes her allergy and what to look for. It also mentions exactly what to do in case of a reaction.

Her daycare has been AWESOME, but I have to say I had to apeak up and mention the seriousness of it before they really stepped it up and made it known to everyone that they were a peanut free school.

Don't just assume that they will watch out for you son. Good luck!

Does you daughter eat the food at her school or do you pack her a lunch everyday? My son is still eating some baby food and graduates so I haven't crossed that road yet. I am planning on meeting with the sales person for the distributor but am curious to how others handle this situation.
