Some schools have implemented the free peanuts policy and others have peanut free zones. But what do you do when your child has multiple life threatening food allergies?

My son also has multiple food allergies. To ensure his safety I follow a number of different steps as I enter each new school year, including educating teachers and students and reviewing food allergy scenarios with my son.

I wrote an extensive article about it at Allergy Shmallergy: http://shmallergy.wordpress.com/2012/08/...

Best of luck!!

teach them what they can and can't eat, and make sure that they fully understand why they cannot take food from other kids. If there is a treat day or a special party send a treat or special snack that they can have,small things like this will help.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Mine has multiple, allergic to sesame which is allowed. I just educate people involved- teachers, lunchroom attendants, etc--and there are always multiple epipens around. So many allergies these days, that I feel somewhat relieved knowing I'm not the only parent in the same boat at school.
