Argghhhh! I just learned that we have a peanut allergy in the family - my beloved niece is allergic to peanuts and all tree nuts. So far, she just gets stuffed up and "chokey", but the doctor gave her parents an Epi-pen and warned them that there's no prior warning for anaphylaxis.
I really want her to keep breathing, so no more Asian take-out for this princess. Any place that uses nuts in their food is out of bounds - her mom is really concerned about the potential for cross-contamination.
Are there any restaurants that don't use nuts in the kitchen? Especially independent and non-fast-food places?
I'd love some tips from parents of other allergy sufferers.
