what about the evidence for the other treatments typically given - antihistamines H1 and H2 & steroids, and how many days they should be given for after a signficiant allergic reaction (usually 3 days in NZ though not sure what this is based on)

Worst Israeli accent I have ever heard- and most intelligent parents do avoid Bamba. But still, peanut allergy isn't too common here in Israel. Hazelnuts (filberts) are in all foods and can be a bigger problem
