This is my first time joining one of these sites, but I need all the help and info I can get. I just found out my son (3) is allergic to Peanuts, Tree Nuts and Mustard. I know Peanuts are a scary one and I know how to learn to avoid them.

I know this is not "mustard allergy.com" but if any of you out there deal with Mustard, I would so very much appreciate it if you would give me some tips

just a concerned dad trying to keep my son safe

Hi there...sorry you had to join!!
There isn't a mustard allergy section here, but there is an active forum for other allergies at [url="http://www.foodallergysupport.com"]http://www.foodallergysupport.com[/url] . You'll see me there as well as many many others, some of which are also dealing with mustard allergy. It's an extremely active site. I'll see if I can pull up some helpful threads there for you.
Hope to see you!

I don't have a mustard allergy myself, so I cannot tell you much about the difficulties encountering it outside of your home. As with any allergy, reaction history can change.
I have 2 kids with multiple food allergies and I feel like it's difficult to eat out. For many reasons....that our 'comfort zone'...what we allow our children to eat, is very tight. We stick to manufacturers that label for 'may contains'...because not all companies do this. We read labels every single time, because companies frequently change their manufacturing processes...things safe one day, may not be the next. If we ever go out to eat, we usually do ALOT of research first and speak directly to the manager...weighing the placement of the allergens in proximity to where our food will be prepared, does the staff have an understanding of cross contamination issues...and so forth.
Hang in there mwd1970, it is ALOT to take in all at once. Take things one day at a time and remember, you're not alone! Allergy is manageable with education!!
And I posted a [i]mustard allergy roll call [/i]thread in the 'other allergy' section of the [url="http://www.foodallergysupport.com"]http://www.foodallergysupport.com[/url] website. There are alot of very seasoned pros there, I encourage you to take a look...see you there!

I don't have mustard either but there is another site that does kids and mustard - I think you can view posts in main without joining. If you search on mustard you should come up with something it is [url="http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.com"]http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.com[/url]

I don't know about the mustard allergy but just wanted to say welcome to the board. This is a great source of information on pn/tn allergies as well as allergies in general. Welcome!
