sorry for all my typ-o's when you quoted me, LOL!!! But no, my sons room is NOT nut free. The teacher can ask parents to please consider Jake when they bring treats, btu if a parent wanted to bring in peanut butter cookies, the teacher could NOT turn them away. They will NOT ban a food. [/b]
Both my boys' schools ban [i]home-made[/i] goods. :GRINGRINGRIN:

Several of you have posted about peanut bans, but none of you have directly answered the question Chandra and I have asked: would you support a milk ban if a parent in your school had an anaphylactic child and asked for it?
As I said in another thread, my son's last reaction was from being hit in the mouth with a piece of pizza at lunch, so this is not a frivolous question.

I did answer that in another thread. I'll go find it.

This is from another thread..
Chanda,
I get what you are saying and asking. I think there is a "tipping" point to any allergen in the public. I think peanuts have hit or are hitting that tipping point. Hitting it by the growing number of children in danger and severity of reaction. Take that and the fact that peanuts are not a staple in our diet and it makes sense to ban them for safety reasons. It will probably help more people than the number of people who will feel put out by it.
For milk, wheat and eggs...I think they are too much of a staple in our diet, combined with the fact that the reaction is *typically* less life threatening than a reaction to peanuts makes a ban unlikely.
But again...I really see where you are coming from and my pov is that I have a 3 year old...I need to protect him...his school needs to protect him....when/if he goes to public I can easily see how that protection would not NEED to include a ban. A can see policies, nut free table - wipe down, hand washing...all that could probably work very well and could possibly work for the other allergens.

I need to clarify, my son Carson has had pizza with cheese scraped off, yes I would consider his allergy minor. His little sister whoever has had a swollen mouth, lips, neck and hives across face and neck from just infant formula running down her face...so I deff am more worried about the milk allergy with her(Savannah). Thus if it continues this high(which I know it might not, but it MIGHT) I will need precautions at school as well.
Jake's egg allergy has caused his throat to squeeze as well, so we do worry when the school serves egg breakfast sandwiches for lunch....his table becomes egg-free as well.
I need to read up now, just wanted to offer that info.

[b] Actually, I did answer it, and yes, I would support it, if it was necessary. Chanda has posted here that she used to (or still does) feed her milk allergic child pizza with the cheese scraped off, so I do not think a milk ban would be an absolute necessity for her son. As I don't believe an egg ban is necessary for my DD, since her older brother eats Eggo waffles in the same room as her and they contain egg. I wouldn't ask the school to do what we (her family) is not doing.
If the school decided it was necessary for a child I would be supportive.

But would you, in the back of your mind think: "I'll bet they scrape the cheese off her kids pizza. I'll bet their child is not [i]that allergic[/i]. Maybe they are just trying to one up peanut allergies."
Would you want [i]proof[/i]? Or would you just take them at their word?
Come to think of it, there have been here people who post their children's peanut allergies "aren't severe".
