Please tell me how you successfully got peanut butter sandwiches out of your lunch line. What's a good plan. I've already talked to the principle who's on board but wants feedback from the parent community before she does anything. How can I get her to make a decision to go ahead with removing pb from the lunch line.

I was scared when my son started 1st grade. He didn't go in the café for half day kindergarten so it wasn't an issue. The principal at his school gave me the standard response that peanut butter is all some kids want to eat and I should understand. Well, I didn't. I looked online or called every school in a 20 mile radius to find out what they served. Out of more then 20 schools I called only 3 still served peanut butter. (one school refused to talk to me or return my calls) My sons school was one of them. I finally got one very helpful café manager of a school in a neighboring town to talk to me. He was so helpful, he told me that Sunbutter is federally funded and that it would actually be cheaper for our school to serve it. He sent me information to bring to our school. I then requested a meeting with the principal and gave her all my information and ended it by telling her about it being federally funded and how it was a win win situation for everyone. The summer went by and when we met at the beginning of 1st grade for his 504 she said she was happy to tell me that our school was now only serving Sunbutter! Even now, thinking about what a victory it was brings tears to my eyes. Now everyone is happy and my son is safer!

Thank you so much for your response and inspiring story. You give me hope. Did you bring in materials outlining the cost? Could I find this information on line. Also you didn't have to deal with any backlash from parents?
