My son has Celiac disease, so not anaphylactic. We make sure that EVERYONE knows about his needs. We explained in great detail about cross-contamination and hidden sources of gluten and wheat. We also send in his own crackers for snack, but mostly the snacks that are provided are safe--fresh fruit, cheese, etc.
We also keep in touch with his teachers if we notice that he might have gotten gluten at some point. Asher is 8 now, so there's his participation in avoiding foods as well, which is a really good learning opportunity for him. The only thing that has snuck up on us were things like papier maiche and things like that.
Hope this helps!
