Colorado Senate considering food allergy bill for schools

A new bill before the Colorado Senate is proposing stricter rules concerning food safety when it comes to food allergies in school.


The bill is asking that schools switch to sun butter instead of peanut butter, as the sun butter is derived from sunflower seeds instead of peanuts or other tree nuts. Alternatively, schools could choose not to serve peanut butter at all.

Allergies to peanuts or other tree nuts can be serious, causing anaphylactic shock for those who are allergic and come in contact with the substance.

The bill would require schools to develop a more comprehensive policy to deal with children with food allergies and help keep them safe.
