    Why do so many kids have peanut allergies now?

    I've been a teacher for a long time.  I've never seen so many kids with peanut allergies.  Why do so many kids have peanut allergies now?

    Maybe more peanuts are eaten these days? When I was young, you only saw peanuts if you went to the cinema and then only in a very small packet - they were a treat. They were too expensive to count as pocket money treats. If not many people were exposed, then maybe peanut allergies were not visible.
