Hello, my name is Julie and I'm the mommy of a 7 month old named Keegan. We found out that Keegan is allergic to peanuts a little over a month ago. I would like as much info as possible so that I can protect my son, I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello Julie, Welcome to PA.com. The majority of members are moms of PA kids so you'll fit right in here.
The food manufacturer's forum is really helpful but remember that old posts can be out of date. It's best to call the manufacturer yourself to double-check on food. Also, FANN's website, [url="http://www.foodallergy.org"]www.foodallergy.org[/url] has good information.
When I was first diagnosed with PA I spent hours here every day reading everything. Don't know what I would have done without PA.com.
If you need help or have questions, post it here! Everyone will go out of their way to help. Cheers, Adele

I'd recommend reading "The Parent's Guide to Food Allergies." I checked it out from my library (had to order it through the system), and it gave me such good guidance, things I'd never been told by a doctor. I'm going to check it out again now that I'm not as overwhelmed by all the new information. There's a lot to learn to watch out for, but it gets easier.
