What to do? The packaging states “May contains traces of nuts” or “cannot guarantee nut free”, you know the likelihood of the item actually containing nuts is very low, but what if? How much of a risk are you willing to take? Have you got your epipen?
This morning I woke to the news that Addenbrooks hospital may have the solution, a possible cure for peanut allergy sufferers. A trial that has seen children with the allergy given a small, gradually increasing amount of peanut protein over 6 months has left an enormous 84% of them now able to eat 5 peanuts a day. That's amazing.
Luckily J's allergy tests came back negative as it has always been a worry that he may have inherited this from me, but for me this daily game of Russian roulette continues. But perhaps not for too much longer.
What great news to wake up to!
