Is it FAIR?

If your school decides that you can no longer pack certain foods
in your kids lunches due to a number of children
in the school being allergic, is that fair?

Should you be forced to limit the foods you chose
to give to your child to eat at school? 

Or is it better safe then sorry?

I don't think its fair. The children that have food allergies should just eat in a separate area.

Better safe than sorry in my opinon!

I don't want to be responsible for sending a child to the hospital!! My child can eat peanuts (or other allergen foods) at home if she wants. I refuse to put other children at risk.

It doesn't bother me at all. My kid can eat those snacks at home that could possibly kill another.

I wouldn't want to be held responsible for sending another child to the hospital.  It's annoying that I can't pack PB&J in my 5yo dd's lunch but oh well.

I'd rather not be an inconsiderate ass hole. I wouldn't want to be responsible for sending a child to the hospital either. My kids can have those foods at home, nbd.
