Oops!- forgot to mention that I used to let him eat Pop Tarts, but stopped because I thought I'd heard about a pb&j kind. Now we get Kroger brand. No reaction to either. WE also eat Teddy Grahams (all kinds, I think) without a problem.

There was a thread under Main recently called "PA/legume allergic can you tolerate soybean". It mentions a lot of the things Tina H. is asking about.
Also, pine nuts have been mentioned on the boards before as a definite no-no.
Hope this helps.

I e-mailed the Spitz sunflower seeds company in Canada and this was their reply:
The SPITZ product is produced by Alberta Sunflower Seeds in Bow Island, Alberta.

kstreeter, I avoid sesame seeds also although my son is not allergic to them and has eaten them without a reaction. It's me that's uncomfortable with them.
TinaH., I think your idea of the new thread sounds great and may be able to help you work this out.

Of the list above, I can eat all of them. I don't like baked beans though and sunflower seeds are not something I've had for about 12 years now. I eat pesto with pine nuts with no problem at all.

My 3 yeard old PA son has always eaten peas, green beans, baked beans and chili beans without any problems. His allergist never once told us to avoid them either. What is interesting is that he was on a soy formula as a baby too as he tolerated it better than the milk base formula. I always wonder if this helped trigger the PA.

Hi All,
My 2 year old is PA and until this board I never knew what a legume was or how it affected my son.. Until the day I got the brain strom to give him green peas. Well my son has never had a reaction to peanuts but this was scary enough. So the answer is we eat no peas or beans in my house. To be honest I dont think I would ever go near any kind of seed either (just my own paranoia, I dont even use lotion if it has sunflower oil in it) I just get to nervous.
That idea Tina had is great about the thread of safe foods, Im sure my son would welcome some new foods he has to be so board with my limited selection.

My 10yr old PA son thinks anything that even slightly resembles a pea or bean is gross--but if it's mushed up in something else, he loves it. In other words--he loves hummus (chick peas) and pesto (with pine nuts).

I'm re-raising this thread in the hopes that McKenzie's Mom may see it to compliment her thread.

Hi my son is also allergic to peas. With his recent testing he is Class III (CAP-RAST) to peas and was told to avoid black-eyed peas and green peas. The allergist also wrote down to avoid cashew butter and almond butter because of cross-contamination issues.
He is not allergic to beans. We have not tested for tree nuts as yet but continue to completely avoid them.
