I just found this thread, I do not have any children, but I do have an anaflactic reaction to peanuts. I was tested about 3 yrs ago and I am allergic to most everything inside & out, but the only food was peanuts. Last summer I had a severe reaction and ended up in the ER after a chicken bbq. We are always worried about cross contanination and have to be very careful at icecream shops, they might have the peanut butter close to other stuff, I also am very careful at church picnics and any place you might not know what the ingredients are.
My friends daughter was just diagnosed with a treenut allergy and the only thing she can have is peanuts..weird.. So I've been working with her, she's having a tough time with her daughter in daycare and going to kindergarten next year.
Thank also for the info on the peanut allergy website...I am still trying to learn what I can or cannot have...its also hard because I have a soy allergy to, so that stops alot of food too.
Thanks for letting me talk...and I look forward to learning more on this thread.
