Did you know that the guidelines from the ASCIA (Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy) for introducing peanut butter to your little one have been updated to start as early as 6 months! We like to be a bit more cautious but think introducing peanuts around month 8 or 9 would be a good idea.
If you are keen to do this, we recommend adding 1/4 tsp of good quality, smooth peanut butter to a food you have already introduced and know is well tolerated by your baby.
Like all other new foods, introduce the peanut butter at the mid-morning or lunch time meal so you can observe your baby for any reactions - including a rash around the mouth, on the cheeks or neck and in more severe cases, swelling of the lips, throat or eyes. You need to successfully introduce peanut butter with no reaction at least 4 times before you can deem it a safe food.
If you don't see a reaction, try an afternoon snack of bananas or apples dipped in peanut butter. YUM.
