Your child should NOT be eating anything that did not come from your house while at school/daycare. Period. If they have an airborn allergy, they probably should be home schooled.

True airborne allergies don't exist.

 They do exist, but they are beyond rare. It's well less than 1% of food allergies that are airborne.

But, at some point they have to get use to reading food labels and assessing food on their own. Mommy aNd daddy can't always send food with them. They have to learn about their own allergies and how to handle it.

Golden rule of food allergies: if there isn't a label and you aren't certain, don't eat it.

But children are jackasses and do things they should not.  I worked in a high school.  While walking up a staircase 3 students grabbed another student that they knew had allergies and shoved a candy bar in his mouth.  He almost died.  It is not as easy as controlling your own child when other people's children suck.  I am assuming because you are being such a bitch about this then your children are the kind that would do such things...

Psychosomatic reaction, but not anaphylactic.

Right. But that doesnt mean everyone around them should cater to their allergy. They need to be responsible for themselves. Peanut free schools are counter productive.

I disagree, i have them, if i even get around open nuts or someone eating nuts in any form i have a reaction. I get blisters in my mouth and throat and itchy all over my face. I dont even have to touch them. I have to leave a store if they are baking with them.

How am I being a bitch? If my child had a severe allergy I would not be putting them out into the world until they were old enough to know how to take care of it themselves. Putting them out there before they are ready and know how to deal with their allergy is dangerous and bad parenting.
