Son doesn\'t want to sit at PF table
My 9 year old son is entering 4th grade this school year. He has always sat at a peanut free table in the cafeteria. He is allowed to bring one friend from his class. He has asked if he can sit with his class this year and not at the PF table. He hates to have to choose a friend and would rather sit with all his friends. The school no longer serves PB as part of the lunch menu though kids are allowed to bring it in from home. My son's friends do not bring PB because of him (they are a great group of kids). Should I push this change with the school nurse and principal? My DS is very cognizant of his allergies, and I think is capable of making this transition (though it does scare me a little). I thought that if he sits at an end seat and not next to or across from anyone with PB (his friends), he should be okay. I always encourage DS to take control of his allergies and asthma, and I think this is a step in that direction. Any suggestions???
