NUT ALLERGIES

Parents of allergic children may be accustomed to screening their snacks for peanuts. But they also need to be vigilant about nuts that grow on trees. A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics found that one-third of the children who are allergic to peanuts are also allergic to tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds and pecans, suggesting that such children should be wary of all nutty snacks.
