dd's class had been out in the woods in the school grounds, and had 'eaten' a berry from one of the bushes. I say 'eaten', but dd says she spat it out. Noone knows what these berries are. DD seems fine, no adverse reaction as yet. Anyone else had similar happen?
The class was supervised, they realised quickly and brought her back. We will keep an eye on her, of course, but not sure what else to do?

When this happened at my dds' school, the school rang NHS direct and they identified the plant from which the berry came, over the telephone (and using google, I suspect) and it was all fine & dandy.

dd's school called in an 'expert', who wasn't sure what it was either!
dd is fine though, no ill effects at all!

The school should be finding out what the berry is first!
