Annie G Posted December 12, 2011 Share Posted December 12, 2011 Ds is involved with Christian Youth Theater and for the first time in the 5 years we've been doing CYT, there is a kid with a severe peanut allergy. We're at CYT for three meals per week- and often ds will bring a pb sandwich. So I know he shouldn't eat it in the facility, but could he eat it on the way or outside the building, and then wash his hands? The sinks have to be manually turned on so he'd still have to touch them. I don't want him to be the source of a reaction, for sure. I'm afraid for him to even eat it outside because if the allergic child has a reaction, they'll likely think it's because of the sandwich ds had. But how can you know whether the bathroom faucet was used by a kid with peanut butter on hands, or the table used Sunday was washed after use? He'll try not to bring this but since the kid is much younger and he doesn't know him, I'm guessing he'll forget at least once or twice. Plus, he's so used to just making PB sandwiches when I'm working and he's on his own for packing dinner. Those of you who deal with this regularly - wow, what stress this must bring to you.
