Can children take peanut butter/jelly/brown sugar sandwiches for a lunch, or is that no longer allowed in the lunchroom?

The boy's had pbj for lunch and I bought some natural from Costco, and was having a mild panic attack. There was no statement or rule on the website, or at any of the meetings.

I'll stock up on non threatening, lunch type food for the first 2 weeks, then ask. My college son was homeschooled til college, ate lunch at home, and mainly took water, fruit and granola type things in his backpack. I just need to retrain myself.

It definitely depends on the school district and private/public. My daughter's private school based allowing peanut butter on whether any of the children in the class had a confirmed peanut allergy. They were not allowed to bring any drinks other than water or plain milk and no sweets. She's in a public school now and peanut butter is allowed in classrooms with no confirmed peanut allergy. Any drink is allowed as well.

When my daughter was in Kindergarten, it was "not suggested". But 2 years later, when my son was in kdgn, there were a couple of kids with peanut allergies, one very severe. His mother wrote a very heartfelt letter asking for the kids to refrain from having pb before school as well. Some parents balked but I had no problem with it. I mean, imagine how you'd feel if that kid went into shock because you were insistent on giving your kid a pb sandwich :/

By elementary school, there was NO pb snacks allowed and a whole list of "acceptable" snacks.

By junior high and now high school, there are no restrictions.

I no longer have a school aged child but they actually outlaw peanut cos a few children had allergies? I could see the school not serving it. But if your kid is ok to eat peanut butter he/she should be able to eat it. Now private schools ok cos you are paying lots of money to send them. But in public school this really isn't fair. Lots of different incomes there and peanut butter is a healthy cheap lunch.

Yep.

I really do get it at the younger ages...kids just aren't keen enough to keep to themselves.

I agree with you. I think we are responding with some amount of hysteria to the possibility that someone, somewhere, somehow may suffer a reaction. Here is an interesting abstract from a British study:
For and Against

edited to add: a British study is cited, but this is a NIH article (National Institute of Health, US).

That's just like when my kid was coming up any child that was a little hypo-active the school systems immediately suggested drugs and we all know how that turned out. Children that were way over drugged.
