I've been thinking about posting a gentle reminder by the front door that our home is peanut free. Even friends that I trust sometimes forget and bring snacks over that have nuts in them. I have a 3.5yr old with PA and an 8 month old that hasn't been checked. I came up with this little jingle as I was drifting off to sleep one night and wanted some feedback:
"Due to a serious allergy
we have made our home completely nut-free.
We warmly welcome you as our guest,
'Please leave any food at the door' is our only request."
I will continue to remind people but I thought it would serve as an additional safeguard. Maybe I could have it engraved on something to look neat. Any thoughts?

Ever since we had a play group girl that ate pb crackers on the way over to our house, we have a sign at our front door as a gentle reminder. It has a stop sign and says 'Thank you for remembering. This is a peanut free house...have you had any peanut products today?
and here is the link from last summer -

Hi Jeanine, I really like it! The only change I might suggest would be to change the order of the first part just a bit to:
Our home is completely [b]nut[/b] [b]free[/b]
due to a serious allergy
That way the most important part stands out just a bit more. I do like it a lot. I don't think anybody could take offense!

I love your little jingle, we also have a sign at our front door reminding people of a serious allergy and that we are a nut and peanut free home.
