More Kids with Food Allergies...

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 3 MILLION children now have food allergies. Peanut allergies have DOUBLED and kids seem to be taking LONGER to outgrow milk and egg allergies; the Associated Press reports.

Actually, breastfeeding does A LOT to reduce the risk of allergies. Dr. Fuhrman explains the ANTIBODIES derived from mother’s milk maximize immune system function and protect against immune system disorders and allergies.

To further REDUCE risk Dr. Fuhrman recommends delaying nuts and nut butters until nine months and AVOIDING foods like salt, eggs, oil, seafood, meat, cheese, milk, and butter until after your child's first birthday.

Does Dr Fuhrman have any recommendations for parents of children who breastfed their child for 1 year and avoided high-risk foods until after the first birthday, but still ended up with peanut, walnut and pecan allergies?
Additionally, Dr Fuhrman has wonderful recipes in "Onlyourhealth Your Child" that my son would like, but so many of them include nuts that my son is allergic to (at least for now)... can some types of seeds be substituted instead?
