Girl Forced To Eat Alone Everyday By School (Photos)

Do you remember food allergies being a thing when you were a child in school? Me either, but nowadays school districts have to implement policies to make sure all their students stay safe while under their care.

Brandi Lingrosso, however, says her 5-year-old daughter’s school has gone too far and has unfairly “ segregated” her daughter from the rest of her classmates.

Little Things reports that her daughter Mia is forced to sit in a booth during lunch and eat on her own because of her gluten allergy. Brandi makes sure to pack her daughter the appropriate gluten-free lunch, but if her daughter accidentally ingested gluten it wouldn’t be life threatening.

“We wouldn’t have throat-swelling, it wouldn’t be a medical emergency, so it wasn’t necessary for Mia to be separated,” Brandi says.

She says her daughter is now internalizing the situation and now takes her dinner plate to eat alone, rather than have dinner with her family. Since she is too young to understand, she sees her being separated as a punishment or something that’s bad.

Brandi has been picking her daughter up for lunch every day and eating with her to make sure her daughter isn’t scared. Brandi is trying to get the school to change its policy.
