I feel stupid asking...does nutmeg come from a tree nut? DS is PA, but we're also steering clear of tree nuts just in case. I have a Christmas cookie recipe that calls for nutmeg, so I'd like to know. Thanks!

Nutmeg is safe. It comes from the seeds of a tropical tree. Coconut is also usually safe to eat. A coconut is actually the seed of a fruit, though some have reacted to coconut you should discuss eating coconut with your health care provider before introducing coconut to your child's diet.
