Would it be possible to only have snacks that are approved by you?

Autocorrect has helped me type this.
Not making excuses for them- but this church is a different cultural background. Even if they didn't hand out the Korean snacks all the kids are used to- there would still be soy in the lunch provided. so basically... I have to wear DS (yeah- right! Too mobile now) if I really want him away from it. They know of his allergies- I've told them multiple times yet the kids still eat their snacks wherever (sometimes in the exersaucers because they don't have enough hands) then ds will use it- or sometimes he'll try to grab one. They do wipe things down though... Supposedly everything is cleaned each week... But I kind of doubt that. Idk. I know I need to be his advocate & go as far as I can without butting heads too much. The woman in the nursery loves him beyond words so she always has eyes on him or holds him when she can.
