I'd be going to school, pulling my kid out during his/her lunch period and eating McDonalds in the grass outside school......Seriously though, who the fukc do these ppl think they are. This is the typical liberal bullshit being forced down our throats. No one is going to tell me that a school lunch is healthier than what I feed my kids.

I can't wait until we can just birth babies in the school and have them raise it, this will make parenting so much easier.

Secondly, while I'm by no means an expert on this, I do think that some allergens are the result of kids not being exposed to things at an early age. Is this the only factor? Of course not. I'm sure there are genetic/DNA and countless other factors. But, I do think that parents that are overly germaphobic with their kids are part of the problem.

Not saying that's the case with you/your daughter, or peanut allergies in general. Just my somewhat miniscule education on the subject from the few articles I've read.

As stated, one is enough for me. Couple this with the rediculous gun laws, vehicle laws, cost of living, etc. and IL isn't for me. Not to mention the ignorance/arrogance of the company I worked for....Lisle wasn't for me

When are people going to stand up against this crap? We've already bent over for political correctness that's killing this nation...when does it stop?

Although this is probably not the time or place, there has to be some truth of this. I honestly don't know a person over 30yo with allergies, maybe it's just the sign of the times or maybe it's something else.

I can tell you the only thing people my grandparents age were allergic to was laziness, communism and stupidity.

Actually, I think that you're right to a large degree. My wife is a clean-freak and used to buy nothing if it didn't say "anti-bacterial". Now we have that in case of colds or something particular, but not for every day use. People don't get exposed to germs like they used to. The only dispute I know of for this is the rapidly rising occurances of food allergies in underdeveloped countries where they don't use anti-bacterial stuff.

We don't complain about her food allergy because it doesn't slow her down and doesn't come with the problems of real issues like mental or physical disabilities. She's been forced to take care of herself at a younger age then most, but she's stepped up to the plate. It was scary when she was a little kid because we had asshat parents that like to joke about hiding a peanut in treats to see what would happen. That stopped (at least in front of me) when I commented that I was going to let her play with a real loaded pistol when their kids came to my house - "just to see what would happen".

You might be surprised at the number of people allergic to foods who are over 40. It's almost a hidden community because adults simply don't order foods that they think will impact them or they know that they can wash their hands and take benadryl to counteract the itchy feeling that precedes real trouble. Adults don't need to advocate for themselves the way parents do for their kids. My wife found very little help when we first found out about our daughter so she started a small support group. That ended years ago but people still call her for advice and many of them are adults who are developing these allergies as adults after eating these foods for years. Pesto seems to be a common food that causes people to notice symptoms - can't explain that.

It's going to be difficult for me to accept that you can't use anti-bacterial everything, but from what I read (a few years ago, admittedly) I think that this plays a part (I tend to be a germaphobe myself).

Totally not cool about people joking in that manner...if it were your beer drinking buddy and you had the alergy, then sure...it's a joke. But not so much when it's your kid.

Showed this to my girlfriend, who went to a private elementary school in the Northern Lower. Her school had the same policy, 20 years ago.

Wrong. I'm over 30, and have several food allergies. My wife who is older than I am, has food allergies.
Most of the things i am allergic too i was exposed to when i was little.

My 82 year old grandfather, has food allergies he's had most of his life.

Tons of older people have allergies. The one that is hard to comprehend is the growth of nut allergies. My grandson is extremely allergic to nuts. It's scary as all get out that he can die from a peanut.

I am 38 and have had allergy issues since I was about 6 or 7. I also have asthma. Lucky me.
