Oh, the things strangers say to parents!

Nursery worker: Well, I was VERY surprised that Amelia had nuts in her diaper bag for her snack. I wouldn't think she'd be old enough for those yet.
(Possible interpretation: Wow, you REALLY don't know what you're doing, do you?)

Me: Actually, she does very well with nuts, and we already tested her for any allergies to nuts, and she can eat them! I was so relieved that they aren't a problem, since she needs the protein in light of the (previously mentioned) allergies to eggs and dairy.
(Interpretation: I've got it, thanks.)

Good for you! People can be so nosy! Keep being firm with a smile. And thank the nursery worker when you pick Amelia up. :-)

Sounds like you gave her a good answer... Sigh... And you will have more stories to tell, I am sure! :-)

As a person who has been in many similar situations, let me just say I am so proud of you!!!!!! It is amazing to me how much people think they can say under the cover of "concern".
