To Make a School More Allergy Friendly


I am well-acquainted with our elementary school at this point, with one child half-way through elementary school. My younger child--the one with the peanut allergy--is in half-day kindergarten (does not lunch at school) and I can no longer sit quietly after reading the school lunch menus. School began in August and I made it to November without commenting. Today, I sent a very brief and friendly email to our food services director suggesting that perhaps our town should follow the example set by nearby school systems and replace PB & J with Sunbutter & J at the elementary schools. I am aware many people love PB & J and I don't intend to suggest we prevent students from bringing it from home, merely that the cafeteria cease serving it. Fingers crossed.

Thoughts?
