We're in a co-op preschool which means that it's the parents who are involved in giving out the food. I've been noticing a wide range of parents support in dietary restrictions. Some seem to brush it off with the attitude of "if there's a mistake, too bad, the parents will never know anyway." A handful of people there seem to have the idea that I'm simply being overly picky by not allowing her to eat certain foods. (ETA: many of the parents are very careful and supportive, too)
I'm lucky in that my daughter does not have a true allergic, immune response, but her intolerances are real and put her in true pain. Some of the kids who have nut allergies are lucky because there are no nuts allowed at school at all.
My question is, do we just happen to have some parents at our school who are ignorant and judgmental or is this a widespread co-op issue?
If it's a widespread problem, how can parents whose children have true allergies risk putting their kids in coops?
