TO BE A NUT OR NOT Provides a safe manner in which to learn what tree nuts look like as well answering the question, "Just what is a peanut?"

To Be a Nut or Not transpired for two reasons.

The first was as an allergy parent I am constantly looking for creative ways to teach my son what foods to avoid, all the while fully avoiding them. A task particularly challenging with tree nuts as they vary greatly in both name and appearance, whole and again shelled.

The second reason for this book stemmed from the misconception between that of a tree nut and peanut. Why does this matter? Well, it's this! There are many products marked peanut free yet they for example contain almonds.  This is in fact correct labelling, but simply having a peanut free logo allows much room for a food allergy accident.   Where as an allergy parent would investigate labelling further, knowing free of one does not imply free of the other, a well  intentioned caregiver or relative might not.

It is in assuming that peanuts and tree nuts are the same therein lies an issue of great concern when avoiding foods due to anaphylaxis.
