School board finds food allergy policies "absurd"

Loyal readers by now realize that Poker Chick does not exaggerate the pushback parents of children with food allergies get, ridiculous though it may be. However for those of you still a little bit skeptical that adults really can be that irresponsible, read this article by Food Allergy Mama.

It highlights comments made by the Illinois state board who is apparently very annoyed to have to have food allergy policies in place. This is the same attitude that prevented us from being able to send mini to our local public school. Keeping an epipen with you everywhere? Yeah, we can see how annoying that can be.

An old friend of mine runs this site. I looked up this topic and thought you'd be good at responding to this woman.
