Allergy Aware Classroom


Allergy Aware Classroom

There are several children in our school who have a severe peanut allergy. We are making every effort to ensure that their safety and health are not jeopardized. Our staff are becoming more familiar with putting in place effective strategies to address the children’s needs. With a co-operative effort we can ensure a safe environment for these students.

I have enclosed a list of peanut-free foods and snacks. Please only purchase items that are peanut and tree nut free when they are to be consumed in the classroom. The label will usually tell you if a product may contain peanuts or if it is made in a plant where peanuts are used. When in doubt it is safer not to give it.

Manufacturers alter ingredients and processes often. Therefore, ensuring the safety of one package does not ensure the safety of the next. Allergy information is located after the list of ingredients. Look for phrases like:

“Made in a facility that also processes peanuts, almonds and tree nuts.”

“May contain traces of peanuts, tree nuts, etc.”

“Manufactured on equipment that also manufactures peanuts, tree nuts, etc.”

Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

 

Peanut-Free Snacks
When purchasing snacks or birthday treats for a school event that involves a child who has a peanut allergy, please read all ingredients carefully. Avoid snacks that contain peanuts, peanut flour, and peanut oil.

Below you will find a list of snacks that are peanut-free at this time. It is always important to read ingredient labels since manufacturers change production methods.
