Many parents have appreciated the sample that we sent home and making them aware that this product is available. The kids really enjoy the WOW Butter and so do the parents. We have had no negative responses.
I am a teacher, with nut, other food and other severe allergies. A number of our students have allergies as well. I fully support the use of soy butter in our schools. Our school presented the product to the parents of children with peanut allergies several years ago, and the parents were in support of its use. It has caused no trouble in our school, and parents and kids have been good about using the labels provided by Hilton Soy Foods
When we serve WOWBUTTER at our school, it is the only day that the kids come back for seconds and thirds!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As mentioned in our previous newsletter we have had a number of parental requests to allow the use of Wow Butter in our school for student lunches. For parents unfamiliar with this product, it is a spread made out of soy beans that has a similar texture consistency. and taste to peanut butter BUT it is completely peanut free. It is made in a 100% peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free, egg free, and dairy free facility. Wow Butter allows for a lunch alternative while also protecting our students who have allergies.
In conversations with the Superintendents Department and with the parent council of École Centrale, we have received support for the informed introduction of this product in the middle of May.
All sandwiches made with Wow Butter must be in a plastic container/bag with the Wow Butter sticker attached. These stickers are found under the label of the jar.
PLEASE NOTE: If the sticker is not attached the lunch room supervisors will NOT allow the sandwich to be eaten. This is because, without the sticker, the supervisors may not be able to discern a difference between peanut butter and this product.
All supervisors have received training and information regarding the use of this product in our school.
At École Centrale, we are committed to providing a safe place for our students to grow and learn. If you have any questions. please contact me by email at ......
