Parents encouraged to try nut-free foods for allergy safety
Increased childhood peanut allergies in America have turned many school cafeterias into no-peanut zones, but kids do not have to give up tasty and healthy foods while keeping their allergic classmates safe.

Tidwell, who specializes in food allergies, said peanut allergies are a serious issue because allergic children can stop breathing.
