Hi Swede13 - I posted a reply on the Manufacturers (Food) Safe & Unsafe thread, but I also wanted to let you know that you should read the KIT KAT CANDY BAR thread on the main discussion board, just to give you an idea of how difficult it is to recommend ANY food as completely safe.
Take care.

As a mom to 2 young girls with a peanut allergy, I can tell you that YOU MUST ALWAYS, ALWAYS READ THE LABELS of every food ingredient first and every time you purchase the same food. Because what was safe last week might not be safe this week.
We should get a list going for safe home made snacks (like celery with cream cheese, vegetables with dip, cheese slices, popcorn for older childrent). We should all brain storm and make up one huge list to help everyone have lots of safe choices.
let me know.

I agree with the other replies. You really need to only eat foods that clearly show no peanut products.
Also, be careful of seafood restaurants (peanut oil) and convenience store tub icecream.

Hi! Sounds like you may be new to this - my sympathies and support.
The best advice is to say that foods in their natural state are likely to be the safest -- i.e. fresh fruit, cheese (except those annoying cheese-and-nut loaf creations)raw veggies etc. They also have the added benefit of being highly nutritious and easy to prepare.
IF you are asking for the purpose of passing the info on to friends, I have been taking paper and pen to my local grocery and reading labels. Then, once I'm done, I call each manufacturer and ask if the products are produced in peanut-free facilities. You will be amazed at how many companies skirt this issue and refuse to answer, I presume, to avoid any potential liablity. Some will answer and talk freely. If fell comfortable, I take the info and pass it on to those who feed my child. I update periodically and start the process fresh as manufacturers change formulas and production processes often. If we are in another part of the country, I go back to checking labels since production also changes according to region. We go by the "if you're in doubt, leave it out" rule and ask friends to do the same.
I also include info on how to prep food - what good are peanut-free brownies if they were cut with a peanut-contaminated knife? At first it seemed overwhelming, but after a couple of rounds it becomes second nature. Our friends and daughter's caregivers have been extrordinarily supportive in helping us, perhaps because we try to give them as much info as possible -good luck!
