My youngest niece has peanut allergies. They're bad enough, in fact, that my sister's family has to watch what they eat, watch what they throw away, ask about ingredients in advance of going to restaurants and carry an EpiPen with them wherever they go.
So as the toddler Amelia grows older, her body may never learn to accept the utter goodness of a Snickers bar, certain types of ice cream, Cracker Jacks or peanut butter. Many would agree those food items are very good but given the health challenges they present to my niece, all would agree they're not good for her.
