Watching Out for Peanuts
If your child is allergic to peanuts, here are food items you'll want to avoid:
Packaged foods without a full ingredient list. Most experts recommend that children with a peanut allergy avoid tree nuts, as well.
Packaged food with wording such as "processed in plant that processes peanuts."
African, Chinese, Indonesian, Mexican, Thai and Vietnamese dishes often contain peanuts, or may be contaminated with peanuts during their preparation.
Ice cream shops. Scoops may go from nut-filled to nut-free ice creams without thorough washing.
Small bakeries. Bakery work areas are hard to clean.
Sunflower seeds. Many brands of sunflower seeds are processed on equipment that has handled peanuts.
