Wow, I had no idea it was this long since I last posted. We are now into a new school year. The one where he eats at school. And everything is fine!
We have an action plan in place and he sits at a separate table in the lunchroom. By separate I mean it is his table only. No other children sit there, not even during other lunch periods. Then each day the teacher asks if anyone has a peanut-free lunch and if they do then they can sit with Alex. The only problem is that it only sits four kids and usually more want to sit with him! He loves it.
The school is not peanut-free but the two first-grade classrooms are. I made a list of safe snacks the teacher can use to buy snacks for the classroom. At the beginning of the year they asked for a $10.00 donation to buy snacks for the year. That way everyone is eating the same thing and it is safe to eat.
Other than that things have been uneventful. We leave for DisneyWorld in 10 days and I have been hearing wonderful things about their food allergy awareness. Hopefully that holds true. I’ll have a full report when we get back.
Hope everyone out there is having a wonderful fall!
