One weekend morning I happened to see a PBS television program titled "Keeping Kids Healthy" with Dr. Winnie King. I was interested because Dr. King's guests were a mom and her young son who was severely allergic to peanuts. I am somewhat familiar with peanut allergy in children. However, I learned this allergy is not as unusual as I had originally thought. Now there is much talk about peanut allergies.
Although I have no young children at home, watching this show reminded me just how fragile a childs health is. Below is the URL for Keeping Kids Healthy and other sites that address children's illnesses. I am showing the actual URL's so that you may print this page and still have the information you need.
