Wow - will this be the opportunity to finally learn the secret of what Momma Bear feeds her family for breakfast? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I know she has some bizarre inner hostility towards peanut-free waffles & fruit (which I consider an excellent, healthy breakfast choice) so I am quite curious as to what her more appropriate, healthy choice for breakfast is... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Cereal? Toast? Pop-Tarts perhaps?

Hi Carolyn,
How's it going in this thread? What do you think? I think we have a good dialogue going so far...
With Anna Marie, Momma Bear, Gail, myself, etc, I think there will be a good dialogue as we are all bringing up many interesting ideas plus we are all extremely talkative [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

That's [i]the [/i]question in my mind.. who is the enforcer and by what authority. This is the "bottom line" don't you think?? I would think that in order for it (committee)to succeed, it would need the support/backing/authority of certain school staff. Just IMHO.
[b]Such a committee, upon official sanction of the school, could serve as the channel by which to address and REGULATE these issues, acknowledged by administration, staff, parents, and students... [/b]
I do wish you success with this wonderful endeavor. I hope it works... I personally think that for it to work it needs the ultimate backing of the superintendent. Since it has been approved by the Board, I would assume that includes the Superintendent, right? What staff are on the committee?
[b](sorry I've been "absent" --I'm trying to get an appointment with my doc tomorrow --think I've got pneumonia...oh joy... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ) [/b]
Yuck... sorry to hear that. I'm sure you're exhausted. Hang in there. I'm so glad to see you in this thread and hope your feeling better soon.
Gail

I like bottom lines.

It's been approved by the school Governing Board, the principal, and the Parent Committee. Staff on board include the principal ,and more importantly, the school nurse.
We've been kind of given a blank slate to work with (including policy development) --which is why I stay glued to debates (whoops, I mean dialogues) like this.

My bottom lines are usually located pretty high up on the food chain.

"Ultimately" speaking.........
Would such a regulatory body (if indeed, that is what the "committee" is) be required to "walk in step" with any laws, licensing regulations, etc,... of any "higher authorities"? Ie: local, state, federal? [i]Provincial[/i]???, etc.....?
Would this have some effect on "enforceability"? [i]Motivation[/i]??

PS....Gail, I am working on my response. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Please [b]Bear[/b] with me.

ok, I dont know what happen,I posted something before my previous post and its not there, grrr.
I have a 5 1/2 yr old pa/tna son. He is presently in kindergarten in public school. He has a ihp and there is a full time nurse. I recently found out that the catholic school by us went "peanut free" last year. I registered him to go there next year.I am waiting to see if he gets in. My feeling is that school is already reducing the risk.Yes nothing is 100% but he will have his IHP. There is a full time nurse in that school also.
I like this thread. Sorry this post is not debating anything. I have a 7month old on my hip who is not happy.
