Peanut Allergy Food Challenge Coming Up

Posted Apr 06 2011 12:00am
We've got a peanut challenge in two weeks. My nearly 11-year-old has never eaten peanut. We've avoided it because of blood test results. We feell like it's time to find out the truth.

Our allergist suggested not using actual peanuts for the challenge as they can scratch the throat and cause confusion over possible allergic symptoms. I plan to bake something with peanut butter, however the allergist said it needs to be "a substantial amount". I'm thinking of putting peanut butter in my chocolate chocolate chip cookies . I also considered making peanut butter type candies.

I'd love to hear your suggestions!
