By Logan Lafferty

Schools across the country enforce strict nut-free policies to protect kids who suffer from peanut allergies, the third most common food allergy among American children, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America…Dr. Adela Taylor, an allergist at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wis., said she felt most adults were better equipped to deal with their food allergies than children because they can advocate for themselves. "Adults can prepare their own food and read the labels on their own," she said. "They can have a conversation and they can ask the right questions."
