In brief: Depends

Is the child allergic to peanuts and/or eggs? If so, they should be avoided as they can be a trigger for asthma.
If not, there's really no reason to restrict these foods from the diet.

In brief: Not automatically...

...Many, but not all, children with asthma may be sensitive to these foods.
Smoking in the house is about the biggest universal no-no.
