FTFA: "Prior to our lease, the Boston Children's Museum leased the space to Au Bon Pain and before that McDonald's"

And there you have it. Anyone with severe peanut or tree nut allergies would blow up walking into Au Bon Pain. Their food items are chock full of walnuts, almonds, etc. I haven't checked their site but personal experience tells me that any kid with at least one of the Big 5 allergies couldn't eat at a single restaurant in the Boston Children's Museum food court. But hey, take down the PB&J joint for catering to the majority of the clientele.

For the record, this much is true at Indianapolis Children's Museum, which is why they give zero farks about bringing in your own food to the cafeteria.

Funny aside, I really got Bojack's dark humor, even the depression...but I also felt a lot of affinity with the dog.
In the end Bojack's "woe is me" and realistic self-destructive behavior turned me off, so I also did.

I like him too, but it's probably more of the fact that I love Paul F. Tompkins. From the work he did on Thrilling Adventure Hour and Bajillion Dollar Properties. He's just so good at playing these overly optimistic characters.

They should build a public swimming pool right next to the cafe. So the kids can go swimming right after they finish their PBJ's. If the peanut allergies don't kill them, the stomach cramps will.

I guess.  But if you throw out enough things will there be anything to eat except air?

Seriously let's make a restaurant that's vegan, keto, gluten-free, allergen free, torture free, cage free, and on and on and on if I go on far enough you literally don't have anything to sell at the restaurant whatsoever

Peanuts are a very common allergen, and be clear, can kill. You'll have kids who've just filled-up with BP&J touching the interactive exhibits, which makes them unusable for  some. Be clear, if a kid did die in that way, their family would barely have to try in court to bankrupt the museum. That they're renting the space out doesn't absolve them from responsibility.

I truly understand what you're saying I'm actually allergic to garlic and shellfish.

my sister has to walk around with an EpiPen because she's allergic to well everything basically.


That said I personally still eat shellfish and garlic because the hives are so random and the reactions are so mild and yet sometimes so awful and yet also random then I'm not going to spend money to figure out what the issue is

And if it kills me so be it

and I've read before that I could have a sudden anaphylactic reaction because of these mild allergies I have just spoke on

Meh
I don't think everyone around me should avoid garlic and shellfish just because it might kill me one day
And I should point out garlic and shellfish is in everything even in things you wouldn't think it was in

After that I'm diabetic you want to know how hard it is to avoid sugar sugar isn't everything

So again I find it hard to care considering almost nobody cares

Why isn't every single soda flavor available in diet

Why is it so hard to avoid palm oil

Why is it so hard to avoid sugar

also why is it everything that has no sugar actually cost more it should not cost more to get ketchup that doesn't have sugar

Peanut butter isn't airborne or at least the proteins that cause the allergy aren't. Those that claim the smell of peanut butter can cause a reaction are just having a panic/anxiety attack. In no way would this make the museum off limits but they probably wouldn't want to eat in the cafe.

It's a children's museum, with interactive elements, which will certainly become contaminated from the peanut butter-themed café it's directly attached to.

They literally have done studies on this. In fact there was a study was done taking 30 children with severe peanut allergy.  They were either exposed to peanut butter by inhalation or by touching peanut butter.  None of the 30 children  experienced a systemic or respiratory reaction.  Although some children did develop redness on the skin after touching peanut butter. Unless there is peanut butter smeared on the displays and the kids start licking it they will be fine.

What is the museum supposed to do about children who eat a home-prepared PBJ outside and then come in and use the interactive exhibits? Would it be too much for the parents of children with peanut allergies to discourage them from doing things that might kill them?

They're doing their best to make the museum unusable for some, accidents do of course happen, but what they're doing is encouraging the problem.

Luckily it has been proven that you pretty much have to ingest it to have a major reaction. This is also evidenced by the fact that plenty of kids do exactly what you describe (eat a bpj at home or in the bring your food from home location of the museum) and people aren't dropping by the dozens.

You ever wonder why there seems to be a correlation between kids with peanut allergies and parents who seem to think that's everyone's farking problem and that peanuts as a whole should be banned from their city and anywhere else they want to go? Because the same kind of Helicopter Karen that would be that entitled is also the same kind that would keep their kids from playing in the dirt when they were young, which leads to (per science) an increased chance of allergies and increased severity of those allergies when they do occur.

Kids are supposed to get grimy. That's how they get an immune system that keeps them alive when they're an adult.

Yep having a dog decreases allergies simply due to the diet and other crap (literally) they drag in.

The same museum that rented that space to McDonalds an Au Bon Pain? Restaurants that serve foods with all the same allergens as the new one?  Kids weren't dropping by the dozens before, and they won't now. The museum is no less accessible than it was before. Their statement laid out that they are not even part of the museum, they just lease space in a separate part of the building.

This is just a bunch of Karens who think everyone else should be totally responsible for their demon spawn kids. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for making reasonable accommodations for people and their issues. This is not reasonable, it's just pearl clutching.

I've taken my kids to that museum a few times while on vacation. It's awesome. Skip the cafe and walk over to the practically-next-door Barking Crab instead. Problem solved. Unless you have a shellfish allergy too.

The kids miss the stones they used to have at the tables to bust open shells. Probably some health department killjoy ruined everybody's fun.

Lol. You do realize how silly you sound?

Someone could eat a PB&J outside, and then leave a trail of corpses in their wake.

We're not banning peanut products. I know it sucks to have to worry about them, but the entire world isn't going to change, nor should it.

 Reminds me of a time when I was at a minor-league baseball game, and the helicopter mom in front of me had brought her three-year-old. At some point she turned around and asked me if I could not eat any more peanuts or move away because her son had allergies. The game was sparsely attended and the stadium was maybe 1/5 full. Lots of empty seats. I told her no and that she could move if she had a problem.
I still roll my eyes at the idea at someone going to a ball park and complaining about peanuts.
