NO EGGS - NO NUTS PLEASE ! e KEEP US ALL SAFE BY LEAVING THESE FOODS AT HOME Eating food that I bring from home keeps me safe. Eat only the food that you bring from home. Anaphylaxis We have several at school who are extremely allergic to eggs, nuts and dairy. In order to ensure that these children are safe at school it is vitally important that no eggs or nuts are consumed at school. Their allergic reaction is so severe, that even minimal contact with other students who have eaten these products, may result in provoking an attack that would require immediate medical attention. Please help us to keep these students safe by ensuring that there are no egg or nut products at school. LOOK FOR SERFER ............................................................................
