NUTS are in more foods than you think. And one Gunnedah family learned the hard way. Nick Mainey was just two-years-old when he was diagnosed with a string of allergies. He ate a meringue at a friend’s place and within minutes, he was vomiting. His face was swollen and he developed welts. After a series of skin prick tests, it was determined he was anaphylactic to bees, peanuts, tree nuts and eggs. It might be manageable at home, but when your child goes to school, it can be a different story.
