I'm not allergic to peanuts, I eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches once and awhile. Peanut allergy often presents in the first year of life, and we often wonder why that is if they haven't had any exposure and have only been consuming breast milk or formula. Should mothers who are breastfeeding and who are concerned about allergies watch their diet.
I was wondering should we completely avoid peanuts while the child is an infant and in early childhood to avoid ever developing a peanut allergy, since it usually develops early, if at all. On the other hand, it's also possible that some slight exposure may be necessary to strengthen the immune system to fight off or lessen the effects of a peanut allergy attack.
What do you think about peanut allergies?
I'm so glad though..
