I've done a lot of research, but I'm still new to this peanut allergy thing. How careful do I need to be around food that may not be peanut-free? Do I need to restrict my kids and my husband from bringing those foods into the house? Right now, I'm telling my family not to bring anything home with peanuts. However, I am letting my kids bring home cookies and treats that may have been "exposed" to peanuts. They have to keep those snacks in their rooms and wash their hands after touching them. (Which I'm sure they do faithfully-right!) I feel bad restricting my family, but crumbs may find their way into my food! Am I being overly cautious?
