We had my 2yo DS tested recently to confirm and determine severity of his milk and peanut allergies. During the testing the doctor also tested for almonds and cashews, no others for now since he said wouldn't overload the test with nuts for safety reasons, and in order to not skew the results. He had no reaction to almonds or cashews. Since then I have added almond milk to my own diet, but I am so afraid to give it to DS!
I'd love to be able to add something like almond milk or almond butter to his diet, but is it really even safe? Is there a high risk for cross contamination? Am I worrying about this needlessly?
