As many of you already know, my DD is PN/TN.
I am now working as the Food Allergy Subcommittee Co-Chair of Pennsylvania's Lower Merion School District Student Health Advisory Council and I need your help!

I have to compile as much information as I can on what is being done to protect food allergic students in different schools across our state, as well as elsewhere in the nation...offical district policies, classroom policies, school policies...

In particular I would love to hear from those of you whose children now attend schools where they have removed nuts from the cafeteria. However, all info would be very, very helpful!!!!! We are hoping that we will be able to provide recommendations for state-wide policy!!!!!


You guys are great!
