Re: Six-Year-Old's Heart Stops After Eating Macadamia Nut Cookie, Life Saved by First Responders

Kids With Food Allergies ·
KFA ADMIN: There is one statement in the article that is incorrect that we would like to clarify. In the U.S., food manufacturers are not required to state if food was processed in the same facility as peanuts (or any other major food allergen). FDA regulated foods are required to list top 8 allergens in the ingredients list if the food contains one of those allergens (peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish).

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

MAM-mom ·
Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.
