Hello all,
there is a good article on what parents, teachers, friends and relatives can do to include allergic children and keep them safe.

It has tips like these:
Talk frankly with the school nurse and your child's teacher about keeping the classroom clear of offending foods, such as peanuts.

Start a new trend in classroom celebrations by having children bring in party favors for the festivities - not cupcakes or cake.

Never feed a child with a food allergy without first consulting her parents.

Hosting a birthday party? Check with parents of guests to see what foods are off-limits and what can be safely served.

Do not call attention to a child who shows up at your house with her own food.

Keep food wrappers with ingredients listed for parents (and school-age) children to read.

Take care,
