Nut Free Classrooms, Good Idea?
There's a lot more food allergy awareness due to increased prevalence. Some schools have created nut free zones in an effort to protect food allergic students. Wanting to protect food allergic students is very important but is this the best way? You can declare a school "nut free" but does that mean it is? If kids and staff bring in their own food from home, can the school really guarantee a nut free zone to parents? Does this create a false sense of security? What about the milk, wheat, and egg allergic kids? Should we create schools without those as well?
