    My son belongs to a sports club and has a few kids with nut allergies. We are asked to bring snacks to certain events. I would like to make something nut-free at home but am wondering if I should sanitize/sterilize my entire kitchen first as we use nuts though not on a regular basis but do have peanut butter as a staple in the house. I also want to know if the FDA has required companies to label all their products as being processed in a nut-free facility or just label that it was processed in a plant that also processes nuts,etc. If there is nothing said on it am I safe?
    Also, does anyone have some really good recipes to make?

    Currently I’m making a chocolate based cookie with chocolate chips.
    It only has 5 ingredients: powdered sugar,chocolate chips,egg,cocoa and vanilla. Hoping I’m safe with this.
    Thanks In Advance for any advice.

    Some brands of chocolate chips aren’t safe for kids with peanut allergies. Ex: Nestle So just check the package 🙂

    I think it’s so smart to decontaminate your whole kitchen because of the allergy. It’s so important to know the ingredients very well for your child. And making sure there is no nut additives in the ingredients
