Being Nut Aware

Important Information About Peanuts At TAPS

Peanut Flyer TAPS.pdf

Tilbury Public School is a “Nut Aware” School. This means no nut products can be brought to school.

A nutritious lunch should contain three or four food groups from Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating: Grain Products, Vegetables and Fruit (preferably some of each) and Milk Products and/or Meat and Alternatives. Mix and match the following ideas, remembering to read the labels of pre-packaged foods or ingredients you use in home-prepared foods:

Nut Free Snacks Ideas

Yogurt, Milk, Fresh Fruit, Cheese & Crackers

Unsweetened Cereal, Juice, Raw Vegetables, Dip for Veggies

Yogurt with Fruit, Milk Pudding, Canned Fruit

Cheese Celery Sticks, Homemade Muffin, Pita—tuna salad

Slice of Meat, Salami Sandwich, Hard Cooked Egg

Plain Popcorn, Bagel with Cream Cheese, Nut-free Granola Bars

ALWAYS LOOK FOR LABELS THAT SAY “MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF NUTS” or “PROCESSED IN A FACTORY THAT ALSO PROCESSES NUTS” AND AVOID THOSE PRODUCTS! MANY CONSUMER PACKAGES NOW HAVE THIS SAFE NO-PEANUT SIGN:

Why can’t we have any food at TAPS with nuts?

We have children at Tilbury Area Public School with severe allergic reaction to peanuts and tree nuts. This allergy can be so severe that even trace amounts of a peanut or tree nut can be fatal.

So please do not send any food containing tree nuts, peanuts, peanut butter, peanut oil, nutella, or imitation peanut butter such as soy nut butter or pea butter (teacher/monitor won’t be able to tell the difference between imitation and peanut butter by looking at it).

We thank you for your cooperation, and understanding of these precautions.

We know you would expect no less if it was your child.
