LOL. I've seen this before. I was thinking: [b]time to clean house.[/b] Party is [b]over[/b]. [i]I mean, what *did* schools think was [i]going to happen[/i]??

Government can only tell the schools so many times: "[i]Don't make me come down there[/i]! If I hear one more word......."

gotta love passive aggressive governmental influence. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

They've done everything but remove the word: "guidelines". But I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually do. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

I mean, they might have to. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

Personally? considering the impact to health (and related costs governments may incur) "unbalanced" diets and "poor nutrition" have, I'm surprised this wasn't earlier........

those [i]were[/i] layman's terms. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

my cubs understand them perfectly.

ie: "Don't make me come down there, the party is over, I better not hear one. more. word." [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

[i]Police yourselves, or prepare to be policed.[/i]

I mean, Jason, would they rather have the government *really* tell them what to do, or get busy? I mean, exactly how will will schools interpret these "guidelines"? Will they follow the "model"..........[i]or make one of their own?[/i]

That should be interesting. I mean, I wonder how much finageling will be going on......

Think the governmental departments are getting sick and tired of jockeying all the complaints? Investing manpower/and/or funding in enforcement?

and if it does, maybe then, "guidelines" might be replaced by "mandates".......

I mean, think the government enjoy funding (even partially) an *aide* to help a child manuever "excess/unnecessary foods" in schools? When many school *claim* it's too expensive to hire a school nurse?? I mean, the schools pay the "rent" with taxdollars, yes?

I mean, should I mention again, what managing things like Asthma, Diabetes, Obesity, Heart Disease, etc.......is costing in terms of disability, healthcare, homecare, supplies, equipment, staff? But hey, I might digress into "non-layman's terms", so I figure: "The party is over....the schools might wanna think twice before inviting Big Brother any further into their business/playground."

I mean, that *to me* spells: [i]accountability[/i]........

ps.......first thing *my* school district (special education department even) told me when I presented them with this a while back was: "Oh, those are only [i]guidelines[/i]. Don't know if that is true, but *I* tend to take "guidelines" seriously. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Personally? I prefer voluntary obligation to forced compliance any day. Maybe it's just me.

Which reminds me......I guess it might be time to reraise some old "Mass Document" threads, yes?

Absolutely not as advice. Just personally.

Jill[/b]

do you mean what *I* posted or the Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004?

If you mean what I posted, I'm just thinking that it might be dicey leaving implementation of the Act up to "guidelines". Especially where schools are involved. KWIM? Or is it just me. (lol----Maybe it's just me)

I mean, do schools [i]interpret[/i] "guidelines" as something they *must* do?

Didn't think what *I* felt would draw so much speculation. (lol)

If you mean the Act itself, well, I think it *might* have significance to FA individuals indeed.

No advice, but maybe it's just me.

Now *I'm* still wondering...again..is the Act a "guideline"? Anyone?

On Dec 29, 2005

The relevance of the wellness policies to food allergy management in schools is that the wellness policies address the issue of outside food brought into the school. They are asking schools to make policies limiting junk food, outside treats, and food rewards.

These policies will work in favor of those with food allergies, since they will be exposed to less food in general.

Also, I have heard people (parents and school staff) express the opinion that having snacks, party food and food rewards at school is a "right". Having school policies regarding food at school will clearly establish that snacks, party food and food rewards are not "rights" and are subject to rules that protect the health of the students.

absolutely understand. I mean, [i]a universal[/i] reason instead of a particular reason. hmmmmmmmmmm wonder if the schools will shy away from the word: "policy" (remembering when a district lawyer nixed every instance of the word "policy" in our proposed plan........) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

anywhoooooooooooo.....Just offhand, I find it..............[i]karmic[/i] that although I've noted some FA parents stress the need of "the one" (hey, I've stressed it myself), it almost seems that in this instance, the needs of the many, (or possibly the burden nutrition/fitness related illness place eventually on the government, for instance) might have a silver lining for the food allergic community.)

I mean, what was the primary driving force behind this Act? Soley Food Allergies or a Bigger Picture? Were Food Allergies even a major factor? A minor one? A factor at all?

Also, some of the highest risk foods for people with food allergies are candy and baked goods. These usually contain several of the top 8 allergens. Children are tempted to eat them, and they are constantly being used as rewards and treats at school. This is unfair, unsafe and unhealthy!

But on the possible negative, will vending machines replace sweets with healthier choices such as nuts? Edited to add: [url="http://www.cgnad.com/default.asp?action=article&ID=155&KeyWords=nuts"]http://www.cgnad.com/default.asp?action=article&ID=155&KeyWords=nuts[/url]

On Dec 30, 2005

Yeah,

Vending machines can be a problem... In our district the elementary schools don't have vending machines, but I'll bet the middle and high schools do.

Last year, when searching online for allergen-free foods, I stumbled across a tiny mom-run company. This mother had bought some old vending machines and was cleaning them up to place allergen free vending machines and snacks in her daughter's school. What a great idea!

I read it to say that each 'local education agency', that means each school board, must create a [b]policy[/b]. I understand that to mean that the school board will create and adopt, by a public vote, an enforceable policy.

why not just set the policy with certain parameters and *mandate* schools work within those boundaries? (or is this a state's rights thing?) I mean, is it ethical to allow such institutions to govern themselves? To be their own monitor? Or are the [i]guidelines[/i] entirely binding? The "model policy", even?

I mean, why did a school distric my son attended tell me: "Oh, those are just [i]guidelines[/i]?"

Again, no advice as I might be very confused.

On Jan 18, 2006

Is anyone working on this with their school committees?

On Jan 18, 2006

Okay, I am still waking up -- so this is just a thought from a foggy mind -- but, could this be used to get rid of PB&J on lunch menus? I mean, the whole idea of good nutrition, wellness, etc. -- Peanut Butter & saturated fat/sugar seem to go hand in hand? Our school uses the excuse that the low income students need to have something to eat -- but if under a wellness program they could eek out 5 more cents/sandwich maybe the kids could have bologna instead of PB. Just a thought.

On Jan 18, 2006

gvmom,

I don't think that argument will hold much weight (good try, though). I think you have stronger arguments that can be made (the Sunbutter alternative argument, for example)...

Assuming you've read earlier posts on the Gov't approving Sunbutter on the commodities list for federal school lunch program. So there's a PB substitute out there, and it's actually a little more nutritious for students as well. If not, I'll post a link below..

Our school district introduced Sunbutter as PB replacement a couple of years ago. Not aware of any issues...

Take a closer look!

This policy is clearly written in a way that schools districts have an "OUT". The policy could simply be something like:

- We will promote health by sending out a newsletter twice a year with health topics.

- Principals will be encouraged to put healthier items in the vending machines.

- Teachers will be encouraged to have healthy classroom parties.

And if the appointed committee approves this then that is the policy. School Districts arent scared. It looks like it was written to satisfy certain groups, but it doesent require schools to do anything but have "POLICY".

Until the goverments regulates specific things in regards to food from home, vending, lunch etc., I dont see anything to get excited about.

RE: Illinois (proposed)

I'm paying close attention to this. Especially the part about "Minimally Nutritious".

[url="http://www.isbe.state.il.us/rules/proposed/pdfs/305wf.pdf"]http://www.isbe.state.il.us/rules/proposed/pdfs/305wf.pdf[/url]

to quote:

[b]"'Minimally nutritious item' means:

..............2.) Any individual food item whose:

A.) Calories from fat exceed 35 percent, excluding nuts, seeds, and nut butters;"[/b]

I think this is in regards to *part* of a "definition".

I'd have to read further to get an idea of how it *may* apply to food availability in schools.
