The school year has just started, and that means adhering to new rules. Oh, I’m not talking about my kids, but the millions of rules we as parents must follow per school district order.

There is one rule I follow and hope many of you do as well. As a parent with a child who has food allergies I totally take the NO PEANUT AND TREE NUTS rule… very seriously.

A great way to adhere to the rules is making peanut and tree nut free snacks like this Paleo Nut Free Trail Mix.

The Peanut

Jump to Recipe

Despite the peanuts name its actually not a nut but in fact part of the legume family. Some of the most well-known legumes include peas, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, and peanuts. Read more about legumes.

Peanut allergies can vary in severity from a minimal reaction of a rash, itchy throat, swollen eyes to anaphylaxis. Unfortunately, until one is exposed to the allergen, the severity is unknown. In some cases, exposure can limit the reaction, or it can make it worse. Each individual is different, and that’s why it’s so important to take precautions.

I am not sorry my son is allergic to peanuts

It took me several years to get over the fact that my son is “that kid” with the peanut allergy.

I hate to admit this, but when I was pregnant with him, I literally ate tubs of peanut butter. I ate peanut butter on everything, and by the spoonful, it didn’t matter. When we started introducing real foods into his diet, I followed the strict guidelines “DO NOT FEED PEANUT BUTTER TO BABIES UNTIL AFTER ONE.”

(is this still a rule)?

… I often wonder if the wait or the tons of tubs consumed of peanut butter during pregnancy increased his risk of developing this allergen …

A few days before he turned one I found this cute recipe that included peanut butter. He took one bite and shortly after I found myself in a panic. He became irritable, eye swollen, rash, and inconsolable. I took him to the doctor to confirm he was okay but he, in fact, had a peanut allergy.

I went home and rummaged through the cabinets for all things peanut. That’s when I learned peanuts were in everything, whether directly or indirectly and reading labels became a must.
