FOOD RESTRICTION INFORMATION

PEANUT/NUT INFORMATION

To ensure that we provide a safe environment for every student, Avondale School District has practices in place to keep our food allergy students safe.  These practices include signs posted outside classrooms which designate the classrooms as Peanut/Nut Free zones and a peanut/nut free table in the cafeteria, where these students can have lunch.

 For some children, even the smell of peanut products can result in an allergic reaction. This allergy can be life threatening. Strict avoidance is the only way to prevent a severe allergic reaction. Peanuts and peanut/nut oil can be found in many foods, including baked goods and most chocolate candy.  Please read the ingredient label of the snack chosen to ensure it does not contain any of the following: Peanuts, Peanut Butter, Peanut oil, Peanut flour, Peanut Meal, or any statements “may contain traces of peanuts or nuts” or “manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts and/or other nuts.”

 We request that parents/guardians do not send in any food that contains peanuts, nuts, peanut nut oil. We also request that the food label be sent with the snack being provided to the classroom so, the label can be carefully read before any snack is distributed to the students.

 We hope parents will consider sending the healthy and nutritious alternatives of fresh fruit, dried fruit, and vegetables to school for parties and snack. PLEASE check with the classroom teacher before sending in ANY snacks, because there may be other food restrictions to be considered. These restrictions include Listed below are some suggestions.
