With an eye on the food allergy community as a unique group of consumers since 2008, we're on a quest to find and share ways to continue enjoying the good things in life.

"Health Canada Reminds Parents of School Lunch Allergen Safety"

I read on one of my favorite blogs--A propos des allergies alimentaires--about a press release from Health Canada with the above title.  The Canadian government is actually encouraging--not requiring!--parents of non-allergic children to pack food allergy friendly lunches.  What a great message! Can you imagine that happening in the U.S.? How I wish! Remember that Aerosmith song, "Dream On"? For my anglophone friends, here is the English language version: Health Canada Reminds Parents of School Lunch Allergen Safety.

This is great and very inspiring to those of us who read the message boards with inflammatory remarks against food-allergic families who want to restrict the presence of peanut in schools.

Canada seems very progressive in this area--what is the deal with that?? Why is the U.S. so resistant to peanut bans at school? Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Jennifer B, for this post!

I am joining you to sing « Dream on » because I hope that someday we will have a Canadian school policy about food allergy.

Jenny, Peanut butter sandwiches are a lot more popular in United States than in Canada.
