I'd like to comment from the other side of the fence. My grandson has a peanut allergy and there are many, many things that have nuts in them or are "contaminated" with nuts. Whenever there was a school party, he could not have any of the treats - and if there were nuts in the treats and other kids ate them, that still constituted a threat to his health. He has said to me that he wishes he didn't have this allergy, but I can't take it away - all we can do is teach him to cope. Non-food items, or foods that are VERY carefully screened are much appreciated by peanut allergy moms. So please try to think of the kids like him that are deprived of treats that other kids take for granted - and don't resent these kids for it. By finding a way to help them not be left out... again, you will feel great, too.
