Peanut Allergy Food Challenge Postponed

Posted May 05 2011 12:00am
We arrived at the allergist's office emotionally and physically ready for my 10 year old's peanut challenge last week. Unfortunately the office wasn't ready for us. There were boxes all around and we were told it was moving day- no doctors or appointments that day.

Apparently the office sent us an e-mail informing us about the need to reschedule. It was sent to a very old e-mail address.

A phone call would have been nice...husband took a vacation day to attend, we scheduled this 2 months ago around the school schedule, anxiety all Easter week-end about the challenge...you get the picture.
So, we rescheduled for later this month, but I wanted to let you know what we decided to use for the challenge.
A few days before "the challenge that never happened", I took a chocolate mold and put in a layer of melted dairy and nut free chocolate. I topped that with a layer of soy nut butter and then added a top layer of the chocolate.
Totally yummy. My son enjoyed the treat and understood that this is what he would eat on Monday at the challenge, except that the soy nut butter would be peanut butter.
So, that's our plan for the peanut challenge in a few weeks.
I'll keep you posted!
