A list of words that mean peanut in all different languages.(here is a link that helps with some)
I just find when you shop at specialty stores you need to know. I can't buy a lot of soup packages in the dutch food store I go to since A LOT include pinda's which is the Dutch word for peanuts.
An ingredient list to stay away from ex. hydrolyzed plant or vegetable protein(if it doesn't list the source)
A chart of a Rast and CapRast that explain the levels and what category the score would be in.
What info. should the Medic-Alert bracelet say.
Just to name a few

Great idea, this thread will be very useful to me, so I thank you Chris! [img][/img]
Here are some suggestions, I am sure there will be lots of crossover, but I thought I would list some off the top of my head. If I think of any to add I will post ASAP.
List of Legumes
List of Tree Nuts
Epi pen vs. Benadryl questions; when to use
Questions to ask at restaurant
Signs of Anaphylaxis reaction
Artifical flavors, seasonings, coconut oil--are these related to PA?
Cross contamination
"May contains"
Eating PB products while pregnant or nursing

It seems like a lot of first time posters are looking for a 'safe foods list'. Maybe the FAQ could explain why there is no such thing.

To add to Lam's suggestion - explain that there is no list of safe companies.
Maybe also an explanation of "may contain", "made in" dedicated lines and how to call companies to find information about their products.
FAQs is a great idea!

I would like to see information regarding the fact that a past reaction is not a prediction of how a future reaction will be.

How about a [b]large type statement[/b] that asks people to [b]do a search before starting another topic[/b] ?
It's all good information, but it needs to be posted under the appropriate topic when possible. For example: if it is a question, a suggestion, a rant, a request, a problem, etc; about a teacher, a preschool, a class, a 504, etc about a school or preschool, try to post it under the schools topic. If the subjects are together it makes it much easier to get, use, and find the information.
I love this site!

What about a list of abbreviations used in posts? I had no idea what dd,ds, or dh meant when I started reading here.
An explanation of the different tests might be helpful,too.
And maybe what to do if your post doesn't show up the first time you submit it. That one got me a couple of times! [img][/img]
Thanks, Chris, for all the work you do.
