    qwerty yes but sometimes baked products, (and sometimes store bought products) are passed on and on and allergies can be in babies where people may not know anything about. this was just a cautionary thread 🙂

    Regardless, as a parent, you should check what your (allergy stricken) children are ingesting, especially on Purim when there is such a mishmash of things coming in. My 6 yo is allergic to nuts, sesame and some other less common stuff, has been asking about food content of items he’d receive, since he was 3 yo.;

    mayan_dvash great point! purim is much harder to keep track then the rest of the year

    flatbush LOL!!! 🙂

    all parents: it might be a good idea on purim just to watch the level of sugar, at night theres still bedtime

    People who are highly allergic are usually careful not to eat unknown food. I know, I’m very allergic to nuts.

    anonymisss thats true but some people (children especially), can have a reaction even if theyre in the same room as a nut product.

    People should also mark if home baked goods are yoshon

    my neighbor puts a sign on her front door, nut free house, no nut products please. we can’t control what pple put in their packages and almost 99% of kosher chocolate has a nut disclaimer on it so…in this case… receiver beware.

    Thanks.

    The boys school and preschool is nut free, totally. There is a kid who goes into anaflaxic (I have no clue how to spell that) if you eat peanuts and a few hours later talk to him. It’s really scary. If someone is really allergic though then they are normally very careful and carry an epipen around with them.

    Something else to be aware of- According to my rav, bottled water is NOT a min for shalach manos, as it doesn’t count as mashkeh for kiddush.

    Rav Elyashiv says that water doesn’t count for mishlaoch manos. Nothing to do with kiddush per se. A lightly flavored beverage would be OK, but not plain water.

    Officially making a macha’a here.

    Haven’t even taken out the potato peeler and someone bumps a Mishloach Manos thread!

    Can a Pesach cleaning thread be far behind? I fear it cannot. (“I already did the front hall closet, the Legos, and half of the desk drawers…,” says Ms CR Poster, with a small self-satisfied smile that she manages to convey in a typed CR post.)

    In the interest of self-preservation and the preservation of the tranquility of several other posters (by and large of the female gender) I protest this untimely bumping.

    I felt I had to make my voice heard Before the problematic bumping progressed from Adar to Nissan…
