For moms who are against banning peanut butter at school?

Posted by   + Show Post

Why is it such a big deal for your kids to not eat pb&j at school? I mean I don't get the big deal.are you just to lazy to make your kid something else.and I can't stand the excuse "oh well that's all my kid will eat" please that's an excuse for lazy mothers who don't want to actually be a parent and get their kid to eat other stuff.so if you are against banning peanut butter why?

Ditto.

Then keep your kid home

Because my kids shouldn't have to not eat something they like because of other kids. Why can't those other kids be at their own table? That would be easier.

because in younger kids you cant control them enough and sometimes just having the oils on their hands and touching a doorknob can set a kid off and can kill them.

DDs school isn't 100% peanut  and nut free, but it's not allowed in the common areas. (Lunch room, gym, great room, library) and it's the odd-numbered rooms that are peanut free).

On the even side, if a kid brings something with peanuts or nuts. . It has to be separated in a different part of the backpack, can't be in the lunch box (can't contaminate it), the child must wash hands, face and brush teeth.

I don't know anyone that actually brings nuts and peanuts to the school.

My kiddos school is peanut free but the next town over, allows it but if you bring it, you sit at the table. I thought that was interesting.

Why does anyone need to stay home? Schools are required to address all special needs of children who wish to attend- every school should have something in place for this situation. *IMO*

Why can't you give him sun butter it taste just like pb

That doesn't fly with me either. My son has autism and sensory issues. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches are one of the few things he will eat.

It has nothing to do with what my kid will eat, it's the principle. The needs of the minority to do not get to dictate the rules for everyone. If a kid is really so allergic to peanut butter that they can't be in the same room as it, they have a serious medical issue and should be in a hospital or some other sterile environment.

Because that is what I want to give my child.  I make my own jellies, jams, and peanut butter and bread actually.  I know it's a healthy lunch for my child.  If that is what I want no one else should tell me I can not feed that to my child.  My child is not the one wih the allergy so *I* do not have to carefully watch what my child is eating.

My child has a peanut allergy and I think it's great that they have a table to sit at- but kids who eat peanut butter don't wash their hands and it gets rubbed on tables and everywhere. If it was your child who had an allergy I pretty much bet you would want them to be safe. You sound very snobbish!

My friends son has a deadly peanut allergy. Just coming in contact with peanut oil transferred from people's hands could kill him. If it were your kid with the potentially deadly allergy I'm pretty sure you'd appreciate a little community support
