Ask a Dietitian:
Q: I was just asked by a swim club coach about nut allergies and if there is a policy anywhere. I coach synchro swimming -- when I fill out the meet information there is a statement that the meet is peanut free. When I was judging diving recently there was a jar of peanut butter available to use. So, I see that there is no general policy yet. It is a very delicate subject, but are we excluding people because they are very allergic? Then, there is the fact that as sports we only rent space in facilities so really it must up to them to have a policy?

Is there any validity to this rule? I find it limits her choice of meals and snacks.
