Well no peanut allergy in our house but I am highly allergic to sulfide preservatives and legumes. Since I am a adult I do buy chili and canned foods for my family, I just make sure I dont eat them. I read labels, (didnt do a very good job last Friday) and buy trusted brands.
My little brother is allergic to peanuts and everything baked etc was homemade, we didnt have processed treats or candies etc unless it was a holiday and then it was in our basket/stocking only and had to stay there. No swapping candy, no sharing treats. It was pretty much a had to follow the rules or else.
I am glad my parents didnt ban all peanuts in the house, when he was younger the peanut butter jars had Mr Yuk stickers on them, along with ANYTHING that might have peanuts in them but since all our snacks were homemade we really didnt have to worry about anything but the peanut jars and peanut butter. We taught him as soon as he could understand that anything with a Mr Yuk sticker was something he couldnt have. Grandparents, aunts and uncles he might stay with etc adopted that habit. When he went to families houses he was taught to not just grab, he needed to ask and find out what was in something first.
Allergies SUCK trust me I know, I have to stick with local owned restraunts that make their foods and sauces from scratch, I ask what brand canned foods restraunts use etc (I cannot eat FoodService brand, or most generic brands) the only two canned food brands I KNOW are safe are Green Giant and Delmonte. It is a lifelong learning process.
