Does your child's school ban foods? Allergy post - keep it civil
Just read another article about food in elementary schools and the ensuing comment war.
I counted up and one or all of my children have attended seven elementary schools at some point. (Between moves, rezoning, and kids attending separate schools for gifted and ESE programs. Calm down lol.) At each of these schools and during preschool I brought snacks and birthday treats. Each time I asked the teacher if anybody had allergies to consider and they told me to bring whatever.
So where are these schools with dietary restrictions? Is it a regional thing, or economic? We are none too prosperous and generally their schools don't turn down any food, even if it's crap. My nephew's private school in Texas has no dietary restrictions - in fact they have fast food catered lol. Surely at some point my children have attended schools with children that have food allergies yet I have never encountered dietary restrictions for an entire school.
I'm curious, does your child's school ban foods? What region do you live in? Urban or rural? Public or private school? If public, is it in a prosperous part of town? Struggling school?
I'm NOT asking if you agree with food bans at school. I've seen enough "My child's right to live trumps your right to nuts" and "Keep your precious snowflake at home" for one lifetime. Just want to know what your school policy is and the demographic there.
