Wonderful news for you and your family! Were you advised to give him peanut/peanut products regularly, now that he has outgrown the allergy?

The doctor said to just add it into his diet, but not necessarily on a regular basis, like monthly or anything. He basically said for us to live like "normal" people. He hopes that in a few months we're not even thinking about it anymore and he just eats what sounds good at the time. I doubt I'll ever watch him eat peanut products without some level of worry, but maybe through the months and years of seeing it happen with no reaction I'll feel like there's nothing to fear. Our plan is to make sure that he eats things that are labeled as may contains and maybe give him bites of things that contain peanut butter (like cookies or something), but we don't think we'll sit him down with a PB&J until we're a little more comfortable with it all. We're still on day one of taking it all in, so I'm sure things will become easier in the coming weeks. It's just so bizzare that he can now eat peanuts!!! The forbidden food...

Did you do the challenge in your town or at the allergist I recommended to you in my (UNNAMED) town a few months back that's outside of Houston?
