If your child's allergies are so bad that his classmates can't eat what he's allergic to, he shouldn't be going to a public school.

When I grew up, we could bring anything to school. I would eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches a lot, or bring nut based products to school. I did this for my entire school life. If a kid had an allergy, they dealt with it, or they didn't go to my school.

Fast forward to me being a dad and sending my kid to school, camp, daycare, etc.

No products with nuts are allowed because some kid might have an allergy. WTF? This became a thing that we were inconveniencing the majority because someone might have an allergy. And with nuts, the allergy levels are from nothing to almost death. If a nut is going to kill you, you definitely shouldn't be out in public because eventually, you are going to get hit with some nuts.

Then there are certain years where someone might have a specific allergy and the class teacher will send a letter home saying the kids aren't to have any of THAT product in the food they bring to school.

Some letters home over the years had: shrimp, peaches, and fish. I am sure there were a couple more, but I can't remember them. I'm not saying I would send my kid to school with shrimp or fish, but peaches? When they are in season, why wouldn't I? Or maybe she might have a fruit salad thing...nope, can't do it, the teacher will confiscate it, and call me on it, and I look like the dick.

I get accessibility and all that, but your allergies shouldn't be my problem, and do you know how hard it is to pack up a lunch for your kid (or for yourself even) when your whole life is based on foods that someone might be allergic to?

I remember spending HOURS of my time finding snacks for my kid to take to school that had absolutely no nuts, but was still healthy. I'm sorry, I'm not sending her with fruit rollups and other sugary shit. Nuts are actually a really healthy snack, and really kid friendly.

Finally, are you parents with kids with allergies going to pay for all the parents of the kids that have to buy alternative foods to what they normally would send their kid to school with? I doubt it, so why make YOUR problem into OUR problem?

Kids with allergies who prohibit my kid from eating what they want shouldn't go to public school.
