Snacks from Home TREATS IN THE CLASSROOM TREATS IN THE CLASSROOM Bringing cupcakes, cookies or candy to help your child celebrate special occasions is considered a tradition for most parents. If your child has a severe peanut allergy, diabetes or other special diet needs, then classroom treats can be a cause for concern. This school year, our district is requiring all treats brought from home be pre-packaged. While home-baked goodies taste wonderfully, they don’t usually include labels. Food manufacturers are required by federal law to clearly state on food labels any ingredients that contain protein derived from eight major allergenic foods, including peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, milk and soybeans. Labels also state the amount of carbohydrates which is important in managing diabetes. While food allergies may affect only a few children, accidental ingestion of allergens can be a life-threatening situation to these children. Approximately 30,000 consumers require emergency room treatment and 150 Americans die each year because of allergic reactions to food. Still confused about what to send when it’s your child’s turn to send treats? Refer to the list on the back of this page. Thanks for your cooperation.
