        I can’t bear to share.                                                 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.

             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.
