pThere was a wonderful article in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution on Tuesday, Aug. 13. It is too long to scan, but maybe some people can get a copy. I am going to save it for when Cooper starts school next year./p

That was a good article--I sure wish I could get them to write something like that here!

That was a great article. It`s interesting that they say that 9 states have banned peanuts in schools. From reading these boards, I had the impression that no states in the U.S. had banned peanuts in schools. Does anyone know which 9 states it is? It isn`t California.

Hi everyone! Just thought I would suggest that everyone print this article off and give it to you child's teacher with a packet of info regarding your child's allergies or e-mail it to your principal and teacher. (or your mil or relative who does not get it) very good article. I was even thinking of making copies for the lunchroom staff at my kids school.
What do you guys think?
Have a good day!
