Hi. The pdf isn't working. Can you fix it? I would like to send this to my son's pre-k teacher. Thanks! Sent from my iPad > On Oct 9, 2014, at 12:05 PM, Kids With Food Allergies < firstname.lastname@example.org > wrote: >
Hello Will Way, We encountered a bug in the system when adding attachments this morning. The link to the PDF should work again. Please test it and let us know if it is still not loading for you. Thank you!
Hi. The document is quite big and so keeps freezing my screen when about 1/3 of it has downloaded. Is there a version that is text-only, or similar? It looks like a great idea (and I agree with the post-er above, that it's appropriate for ALL children). Thanks!
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.
Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.

Do you need ideas to share with your child's teacher to encourage non-food rewards in the classroom? Many elementary schools are becoming more food allergy aware. An average U.S. classroom has two children with a food allergy. Using non-food rewards is healthier for everyone, not just those with food allergies. These ideas get a class up and moving after a job well done.

Thanks for this piece!! I'm in search of any materials that help make ending the classroom birthday treat more palatable to parents & staff that are still undereducated when it comes to the reality of children living with life threatening allergies.
Many schools are moving away from celebrating holidays with food in the classroom. If your school chooses to celebrate the winter holidays, partner with key school staff and families to plan holiday festivities that are safer and more inclusive for everyone, including kids with food allergies.
