Summer is (finally!!) almost upon us after a particularly long winter, and for many, that means it’s time to start traveling. For people with tree nut and peanut allergies, this can be particularly challenging because airlines still serve peanuts and some meals that may contain nuts. Although allergy advocates are working to change the airline status quo, in the interim, the onus for safety falls squarely on the traveler.

Why is it necessary for some people to wear peanut allergy bracelets? Highly sensitive people can have a serious food reation if only 1/44,000 part of a peanut kernel is ingested! It is easy for people to avoid eating peanut butter or a handful of peanuts if they are allergic to peanuts. It is not always so easy to avoid the hidden, trace ingredients of food in restaurants or unsuspecting food items.
