Geneva schoolchildren who have a nut allergy are being told the schools cannot cater for their needs and they will have to bring in prepared food from home for lunch.

Parents are complaining about not being told of the new rules, but school officials say a letter was sent out in November.

The head of extracurricular activities, Nicolas Diserens, says the move only affects children who need to carry an epi-pen and they will be able to store their lunch in a fridge and reheat it.

He says only about 80 children are affected out of 27,000.
