Your Kid's Peanut Allergy is an Inconvenience

My oldest son came home from his first week of kindergarten with a letter stating that peanuts and peanut products were not allowed at school. What? He has eaten peanut butter sandwiches every day for years. What am I going to send for MY kid for lunch? He also loves peanut butter chocolate chip granola bars for snacks.
