My 3-year-old son has just been diagnosed with a hazelnut allergy, and we eat out/takeout often.
Does anybody have some favourite nut-free places?
I'm wondering specifically about ice cream, pizza, Timbits, and especially Indian & other Asian restaurants in the Hamilton, Ontario area.
Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Hi Lois, and welcome to the forum.

For your Timbits question: Tim Hortons says that none of their products can be guaranteed as free of peanuts, nuts or other allergens.

See for their wording (it's pretty hard to see on their site, so I've pasted it here):

If I have an allergy, can I eat any Tim Hortons products?
If you have a food allergy, please be aware that Tim Hortons products may contain, or have come into contact with, peanuts, nuts or other possible allergens. Tim Hortons is a bakery environment, serving baked goods that are not in sealed packages. Therefore, we unfortunately cannot guarantee a 100% allergy-free environment.

If you would like more information about ingredients or allergies, please call our customer assistance line at 1-888-601-1616 (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).

I would not recommend feeding any of their products to someone with a peanut or treenut allergy.

For other ideas, check older posts in this forum. That will likely help you get started. The good news is that a number of restaurants/chains are quite aware of peanut and tree nut allergies.
