27 Jul Nut Allergies and Outgrowing Them
For years I shared that my daughter was extremely allergic to nuts from the time she was 2. We found out when we gave her a tiny taste of peanut butter at age 2 and she had a reaction. Further testing gave us a long list of all the nuts she was allergic to. As most moms are with this diagnosis, I was always nervous about hidden nuts in foods, in other kids lunches, in her environment and more.
We carried Benadryl and an Epipen with us everywhere at all times and taught her how to always ask, to be responsible, accountable and to verify what is in foods and snacks. We had a system… read labels, ask questions, verify, be prepared.
