Child in my class has an epic food allergy list.

This boy I have in my class this year is allergic to soy, shellfish, eggs, dairy, gluten, citrus, potato, tree nuts, peanuts, strawberry, and apparently artificial food dye.  

I'm left wondering what the heck this kid can eat.  I sent a list of treats I give out to the parents and they crossed all of it off.

I would ask for a doctor note on that. The good dye, they may not even be allergic too

Geez. Poor kid. I'd ask what they suggest for treats instead and have a stash of those for him.

All allergies require a doctor note in order to be adhered to at school.  The nurse collects them and sends an email with kids allergies.  I have two peanut allergies, one bee allergy, one gluten allergy, and this kid. Plus a diabetic

Why would the parents need a doctor note? They should be able to say whatever they want their kid to eat without that.

They shouldn't expect the rest of the class to conform to that either way.

When my oldest started school she was allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, strawberries, tomatoes, carrots, gluten, some food dyes, and green beans. She's also never really liked meat. Those were not fun days. She out grew the allergy to carrots, food dyes, green beans, and is much less allergic to tomatoes. My other kids all have food allergies as well as my husband and I.It sucks.

I was assigned a student with all of those allergies, except citrus.
Lunch time was fun. I was like a drill sergeant. His friends couldn't come to our table until they washed their hands.
