@itvnews @itvborder difficult balance: include the allergic child at food times or limit choices for others? Nuts off menu for ages now!

Karen Rennie on Facebook:

"Would you ask if it was necessary if it was a nut allergy? Of course it is! Who cares if it's a banana allergy or a nut allergy, the school has to take precautions to make sure the child isn't exposed to them while in their care and the best way to do that is ban them."
