If you don't like long posts, skip to second and third paragraph. lol I'm sure you guys will be brutally honest with me, so here goes. lol Ds goes to preschool 2 days a week. They have a ''no peanuts'' policy, but they are very lenient. VERY. I actually just got an email a couple weeks ago stating that although they don't like peanuts, they know it's hard to find something that kids will eat so if you send your child with peanut butter, they'll just move them to the other side of the room, away from anyone with a possible allergy. Well, now we got his allergy test back, and he can't have a LOT of foods, so thinking of something to send him for lunch is hard.
So, Tuesday, I sent him rice cakes with soy"nut" butter on them. He came home and told me the lunch teacher threw one of them away and made him move to the peanut table. Wtf? I finally get him to explain that he tried to cut it up and it fell apart on him so she chucked it. I'm slightly irritated because she threw his food away and made him move when I put a sticker on the bag that says "100% peanut and nut free". Whatever.
Today he comes home and wasn't allowed to eat his larabar because it had cashews and almonds in it. He asked the teacher to open it (different teacher than Tuesday) and she told him to wait until he got home to eat it because it had nuts in it. So now I'm even more irritated.
I don't send my child a ton of food because I don't want to waste it. I send him what I think he'll eat, with a little extra. Should I be pissed? Someone help me write a nice email to the director because Idk how. lol
EDIT: They are a PEANUT free school. They do not inlcude other nuts or legumes in their policy. And besides, their policy is to move children with peanuts, not throw their food away or not let them have it.
