Peanut products Banned

From our preschool.

I'm not really upset it just means I have to come up with other "last minute" lunch options.

Without causing a fight can someone please explain the reason why other children cant enjoy peanut products in the same classroom as a child with a peanut allergy?

I really have never dealt with a peanut allergy before or had friends that were allergic.

Some children have allergies that are so severe that being in proximity to it can trigger a reaction. Preschooler also have a tendency to share unintentionally as well.

Because a lot of kids have peanut allergies and its risking their lives. I know kids who are so allergic that it doesn't matter if they are on the other side of the room eating it, a kid gets that peanut oil on their fingertips and then touch something that the child whose allergic touches, it could kill them, and lets just face it, preschoolers aren't the best at washing their hands and being careful with what they touch.

Most with peanut allergies have severe reactions. Just the transference of peanut oil from the hands of one child eating a pb sandwich to another child with the allergy can cause anaphylactic reaction.

so they won't get sued over some kid with a peanut allergy having a bad reaction.
