Because there are so many new parents on this board I thought I would bump this up to see new opinions and to see if some of us that posted way back when have changed our minds about what we had posted.
I still want a ban - I don't care if it is unrealistic or inconvienient. It doesn't mean than I can get the ban - I just want it.

This topic has been under much discussion at our house recently. Our 4 yr old son is due to start preK at the local public elementary school this fall. The nurse has agreed that his classroom will be peanut free and he will have epipens in the classroom as well as at the nurse's office. However, the cafeteria serves peanut butter and fluff sandwhiches as a lunch option everyday. So, my husband has started lobbying the principal in an effort to have the school stop serving the pb sandwiches. The cafeteria also doubles as a gym which makes us even more nervous. For this year, my son won't go into the cafeteria but I think he will next year for kindergarten. So, dh feels like he has a year to get this situation manageable. DS has other life threatening allergies as well actually. Milk is one, egg is the other. We figure there is no way that we are going to get a milk ban or an egg ban, or even a reduction. But if dh can at least reduce the number of kids eating pb by something we our hoping that it will at least help keep our son that much safer. Dh is hoping to first convince the school to stop serving the pb, and then after that to ask for a voluntary ban on pb. Just a please don't bring it if you can avoid it kind of thing, not a full ban. I hope he can make some headway because as of right now it's not looking very promising.
I read the previous posts with great interest and I hope to use some of your solutions to our benefit. For us I think we might need some sort of a food allergy table instead of a peanut-free table. I guess we'll have to do what we can and hope for the best. I'd be very, very interested in talking with anyone else from MA who has dealt with changing schools policies. The more information we have going into this the better. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
