I'd like to introduce myself. I'm the mom of a 4 year old boy who was diagnosed with a peanut allergy when he was one. Prior to this, his pediatrician thought that maybe he had a reflux disease. Initially, I was devastated, probably like most. I had just given birth to his sister, who has been tested and thankfully, is not allergic (though she doesn't eat peanut or nuts like us). My boy is now beginning to learn about his allergy and is very receptive and understanding about it. He lets others know and asks me if he can have certain foods. Yet I know when he enters preschool this September (which is a peanut free school) that he will rely on others to guide and "protect" him. A few of my peeves include seeing peanut shells on the ground on sidewalks, in public parks and surprisingly one in the backyard of our new house while I was raking. My passion about advocating for his allergy and a cure is growing every day and that is one of the reasons why I have started http://www.peanutfreesweettooth.com Please visit and let me know your thoughts and how I can better serve the peanut free/tree nut free and allergen free community. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

I'm glad you're teaching your son about his allergy. My parents made sure that I could recognize when I was having a reaction and also be able to get help for myself. It's one of the most effective precautions you can take. I will check out your site. Thanks for the link! :)
