Default Allergies

Im talking about real ones and not the makey uppy ones.

Should companies,schools, restruants and cafes negatively change the food for everyone just to accomodate the handfull of people with a real allergy.

Im thinking No but then again, i dont have a severe allergy or know someone with one.

I thonk that even schools banning Nutella and kiwis for everyone based on.one chold is extreme. Why cant that child be supervised closely at break time?

Do people have a better understanding of this and share their experience here?

I say yes it is at a young age that parents and schools learn that children have allergies in the first place so best to ensure that none of the kids are put in any harms way.

I agree that a blanket ban in unreasonable but for schools there should be i don't know healthy diet as for restaurants and cafes they are different IMHO since they don't have a duty of care that schools possess.

As for canteens and food dispensaries that operate on school territory they should fall under school jurisdiction so a healthy diet should be pursued at cost of any food companies.

It seems to be a vicious circle - pregnant women avoid nuts because they're afraid the foetus is allergic to nuts, then they avoid giving the kid nuts at an early age, all this increases the likelihood of nut allergies. Better off eating loads of nuts while pregnant and breastfeeding, then include nuts amongst first solid foods, reduces chances of nut allergy down to almost zero.

Also, people who say they're allergic to nuts aren't actually allergic to nuts: peanuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews, brazil nuts, walnuts, monkey nuts and pine nuts aren't actually nuts e.g. peanuts are peas.
So you could include all these as ingredients in a food product and legally label it as "doesn't contain nuts".

when people say they're allergic to nuts, they actually mean they're allergic to peanuts, tree nuts or both.

Technically seeds, apparently, and the trade is worth billions each year.
