I just have to get this off my chest and this is the last comment I am ever going to make about it.

The food policy at our Pre-School is CRAZY!!!!!

Rule #1--You can't bring food for the class unless it is store bought, sealed with the label on it stating it is tree nut free.

Fine.  I completely understand this one.  People have allergies.

Rule #2--You can't bring in your own lunch tree nut products.

Fine.  I understand this one as well.  Some people's allergies are bad enough that smelling it is enough.

Rule #3--You must must the package or cut out the label of the food you are sending if it is even remotely questionable of having or being processed in a tree nut environment.

I have succumbed to this and am now over it. boxes have holes all in them.

Rule #4--You may not bring anything homemade for your own child's lunch even if you include the label of all the ingredients used and there is no indication of a tree nut product anywhere.

WHAT???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????  It's for MY child and it is TREE NUT FREE!!!!!!!  GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!

There.  I am done ranting, but this is RIDONCULUS!!!!!

I agree, that is extreme. So, how do they determine whether the muffin you send is homemade or one you bought at Starbucks? My child has allergies and I must make a lot of her food because she is unable to eat the processed/packaged stuff. Maybe it is an early April Fools' Day Joke?

what does tree nut free mean anyways?!?!?!!? ;) Those people seem way crazy to me! Sorry Jennifer, but this just cracks me up!!!!! How crazy it has gotten these days! I guess it will be even worse when I have children.... ugh! I'm gonna be in for it, especially since I don't even understand these rules!
