Note: Not all people who are PA automatically are allergic to all legumes. Proceed with caution when dealing with young children. If wanting to expose them to these foods when they are PA, do it one food at a time in a week, not 3 or 4 in a week because then it is harder to find the culprit. Always back up your decision to expose with your dr's advice and test with allergist if you believe that a reaction occured. Do not avoid these foods solely one the idea that they are related to peanuts. When in doubt, find out! Bonne Appetit!
