8 year old daughter just diagnosed with peanut allergy :-(
We just got confirmation today that my 8 year old has a peanut allergy. This was a total shock to us as we have never restricted anything she ate. She has never had peanut butter though(or at least not as far as I can remember) and has not had any peanuts that we can remember. She has however, eaten her whole life, other nuts like cashews, pistachios, almonds and her favourite spread, Nutella. This is why the peanut allergy was so surprising for us.
How we found out: She had an allergic attack at Disney a few weeks ago, after having a few bits of peanut butter sandwich. This led us to allergy testing which was confirmed today.
This is all a little much for me. Im new to all of this so still trying to process all of it and educate myself.
Look forward to meeting you all and sharing experiences and advice.
