i was reading DDs handbook for school, (just randomly cuz i was bored) and i found out she isnt allowed to take homemade treats to her class (like for bdays or a holiday party) that they have to be store bought and cnt come out the bakery, they have to be off a shelf (mass produced) i found this kinda odd as when i was a kid my mom made all kinds of treats for my class. she just made sure not to use peanuts and stuff. is this the norm now or just kinda specific to DDs school??

No =( and it has to be something on the healthy food list, plus nut free

her school doesnt have a "healthy food" list, though they ask you to only send stuff like a candy bar, cookies, cupcake etc in their lunch once a week. course if you send it more than that they wont take it away either. as far as class parties etc, no nuts and a clear ingrediant list is whats required.

We can only bring store bought goodies into the school's here. The reason, to many food allergies.  Everything we bring in has to be labled with the ingredients on it. Unfortunately, my kids are in "allergy senstative" classrooms this year, so we can't bring in any chocolate, anything containing nuts, or anything with red food dye in it. I am supplying bottled water for dd's class for her party, and I a fresh fruit tray for ds's class.  I signed up to bring these items in at open house. The room parents planned what to serve, and the parents chose what items to bring in from the list.  I am not to upset. My kids will get more than enough candy when they go trick or treating.

im not upset, it was just kinda surprising to me. i wouldnt use nuts in anything but i would think that would be common sense. i was just surprised i guess is all. what im most surprised bout is even if it hs a clear ingrediant list we cant bring anything out of the bakery. i hate the thought of just sending generic chocolate chip cookies.
