My friend’s child is allergic to just about 75% of the things on the planet.  Peanuts, dust, dogs, wheat, milk, chicken, you name it!  They found out pretty early when trying to give him foods as a baby and he developed hives.  After seeing that multiple things caused reactions he was given the full scope of allergy tests.  Poor kid 🙁  They wound up having to feed him this weird corn mush stuff for like a year because it was one of the only things that wouldn’t put him in the hospital.  He can now have like 2 different meals (ham, peas, corn, and applesauce or gluten free cereal with soy milk I think).  It’s been really difficult for them.  Hopefully your niece only has one allergy and hopefully it is not too severe! (I know some people cannot even be around peanut dust, but some can just not EAT the peanuts).  Good luck!
