What Came Home?
Nuts and nut butters are always tough in school situations. Ryan’s preschool was completely nut free, limiting our lunch options. Now that he’s in public school they have a nut-free table, which lets me send him in with a PB&J or a side of almonds now and then, although he usually request no nuts so he can sit with all his friends.
Evan’s situation is a little different as his day care is much smaller. They haven’t yet had a child with allergies in the toddler room and nut products have been allowed. I’m sure this will change as they grow but in the meantime I appreciate the flexibility to send him in with almond butter sandwiches or a side of cashews, both of which he loves giving me a bit more flexibility.
This lunch surprisingly went over well considering he’s been hit or miss in the broccoli department recently.
