Re: Kindergarten teacher does not take nut allergy serious

Allergies are taken really lightly here. They don't realise how dangerous they can be. My son has a peanut allergy, and thankfully we arrived when he was 12 and able to take care of himself much better. I actually even had a hard time getting a prescription for an epi pen from my son's Doctor! He did not think it was necessary and gave him an antihistamine pill to swallow. I had to explain to him that swallowing an antihistamine when his throat is swelling up is somewhat impossible! A letter from the Dr is a great idea. I would also simply tell the teacher that your child cannot eat ANY food provided by someone else, but that you will gladly provide an alternative treat for your child to have on such occasions. Maybe you could provide something the teacher can keep in her desk.
