Anyone Out There Dealing With Peanut & Tree Nut Allergies?
This mom needs your help. Maybe this post could turn into a place to swap some relevant Japanese phrases and vocabulary. All I can offer is that the word allergy is the same in Japanese. More or less. Not helpful, I know.
My 4-year old son is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. Does anyone have any insight into dealing with this life threatening allergy in. Maybe someone knows of a certain food to avoid that may have peanuts but may not be obvious at first. For instance, I saw this tofu dish and one of the dishes was tofu with a peanut base, but the peanut ingredient wasn’t something that was listed prominently. Also, I have to be concerned with cross contamination. So if anyone knows of certain restaurants to avoid that cook with peanuts/tree nuts or use peanut oil, etc, I would appreciate the information. I have to carry an Epipen everywhere, but that may not necessarily save his life if he goes anaphylactic. I have it down pretty well here in the US but obviously with the language and possibly less strict laws on labeling and all the new foods out there I want to educate myself as much as possible.
