Severe food allergies are super rare (1% of the population), and peanut allergies, while counting for about half, still means they kill like 1 in a million kids a year. Why are we so concerned with getting peanuts out of everything!? My generation and older grew up on peanut butter and jam, it's cheap, and healthy, and filling and kids like it! These are the things we need today in our economy, now they're eating junk food, because hey, that Mars bar is peanut free! Why didn't we all die from eating peanuts? They've shown that kids can outgrow peanut allergies, by eating small amounts of peanuts over time. So rather than helping, we're actually making them worse by removing peanut products from everything.
So I say, give them peanut butter sandwiches, take away the McDonalds, and turn them back into normal kids.
