pI have a 21/2 pa daughter. Just recently we started showing her pictures of peanuts and saying YUK-GROSS-STINKY, then we tell her that peanuts are no good for Greta. Peanuts will make her sick. She has definitely picked up on it because I overheard her telling her 4 year old friend"peanuts are not good for Greta". I was and still am thrilled!! We haven't even begun with cross contamination issues yet!! Just take it slowly. Good luck!/p

pMy son has no memory of Peanut reaction. he was diagnosed at 14 months by blood test. he had hives on first exposure at around 12 months. My son is allergic to most foods. The only foods that are not confusing to him are peanuts, chocolate and eggs. he can identify these. He knows to ask people to check ingredients (though now I am the only food preparer) He is confused by the ones he cannot see, like wheat, soy, dyes etc. I still do not expect him to be responsible for his own safety, he is only 4. Four year olds still run out into the road even though they "understand" the danger. I try to teach and comfort, and eventually he will take the ball himself...when he is mature enough./p

pMy 2 year old son just had his first skin test yesterday and tested positive for peanut. His reaction was to peanut butter at 14 months and again at 18 months, just a mild rash around his mouth. The other day he asked me to make him a p.b. and jelly sandwich... saw it on Barney. I tried to tell him that he cannot have p.b., it will make him sick. He does not understand this. He will try to eat anything he can get his hands on. He is starting preschool in the fall, and I am very worried about him accepting food from another child. I do not know how to explain to him (without frightening him) that he has to be a picky eater. He hasn't had a reaction to anything else, and the p.b. reaction he had was so mild, he doesn't even remember it. He loves to try new things and I am petrified that once he "ventures" out into the world (preschool), he may eat something he shouldn't. Any advice?br /
Thanks!/p
