In brief: Read labels

You become an expert in reading labels and asking questions when you eat out.
If the allergies are severe, the a medic alert bracelet or necklace is indicated. Having an Epipen (epinephrine) on hand at all times is essential. Almonds, pecans, and walnuts are common in foods so you ask in restaurants if foods can be prepared separate from such foods. Education in your child's school, making his foods, etc.
