Nestle products with peanut allergy

My daughter has a semi confirmed peanut allergy (one serious reaction but only a borderline result on SPT so we were given an epipen). Ive been looking for nut free products and was wondering if anyone else has come across the list on the nestle website? It says these products aren’t made on same machinery as nut products but won’t claim to be peanut free because they’re not batch tested. So they don’t say that the may contain traces of nuts but this disclaimer has worried me! I’d love to use their chocolate chips and things like that, but was wondering if anyone else with more allergy experience has an opinion?

We don't use Nestle so I can't comment I'm afraid, but I have found 'Moo Free' to be a good option for us for chocolate and choc chips. They do process hazelnuts in the same factory which is why we feel ok to go with them as DD hasn't tested allergic to those. I'm still pretty cautious with it though and generally only give to her when I am present.
I usually avoid 'processed in same facilities' as any of DD's allergens which is pretty restrictive for us but she is severe.
I know some use Sweet William but that doesn't suit us as has other things DD can't have like soy etc.

It seems to depends on the child.
DS's best mate is anaphylactic to peanuts, but can eat a freddo frog without issues. The child in his class last year wasnt able to even eat that.

My DD is allergic to peanuts and had a very strong reaction on the skin tests. She is not allergic to any other nuts. She has eaten Nestle choc chips and other cooking chocolate without any reaction. Obviously this doesn’t mean your child will also be okay, and you need to be comfortable with the level of risk.
Edited to add, the allergist we see advised not to avoid any food that she had previously eaten without issue, so if you have used them before...
Otherwise kinnerton is another brand that does sell products labelled nut free. Often Aldi have some of their chocolates around Easter and Christmas so can be a more budget friendly option than some of the other nut free brands.

My dd is anaphylactic to peanuts, and can eat nestle and Cadbury choc chips.
She avoids 'may contain peanuts' and uses caution with 'may have traces' all based on years of conversations with her specialist and trial and error. She has a protocol to follow to test a new food, her specialist stepped her thru this to assist us with foods while we are travelling and now as a teen eating out with her friends.

Thanks everyone. This navigating an allergy is a little bit overwhelming!

Hi OP. It is overwhelming and we are now 4 years down the track from diagnosis and still learning. We don't use Nestle but we are unable to consume traces and any products made in a factory handling peanuts. As per PP some kids can eat Cadbury with no issue. Unfortunately we are not one of those families! Good luck it gets easier an will become second nature after a while.
