Would you be OK with other kids eating...
Chocolate (ie, "gold coins") in a peanut/nut free classroom? This is a Kindergarten class, half day, where each kid brings his/her own daily snack, and the snack is supposed to be peanut/treenut free.
The kid is bringing gold coins in his own lunchbox for his own snack. Thankfully my DS doesn't sit next to him (for other reasons too - this kid is always in trouble). Teacher knows because she had to HELP him open the gold coins today. Don't some of these contain hazelnut?
I thought there was a "no candy in school" rule too (isn't chocolate candy?)...so not sure why the K teacher isn't informing this mom not to send this type of "snack".
