Actually, in one of my panic sessions about Ieuan's nutrient free diet, a vegetarian friend of mine pointed out that peanuts are packed with protein - just 1/4 of a cup contains 19% of the recommended daily intake. Plus peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fats which have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. So Ieuan wasn't doing so badly after all!
If you are considering giving peanut butter to your kids, here's the NHS' advice.
"Whole nuts, including peanuts, shouldn't be given to children under five, as they can choke on them. As long as there's no history of food allergies or other allergies in your family, you can give your baby peanuts once they're six months old, as long as they're crushed or ground into peanut butter."
You can, of course, also cook with peanut butter - peanut chicken satay, peanut butter cookies, even peanut butter fudge!
Each prize contains two 340g jars (one each of the following) and bag of pretzels to dip.
Skippy® Super Chunk® Peanut Butter - every jar is blended with loads of real peanut pieces so you get the fun flavour of SKIPPY® Peanut Butter, plus crazy amounts of crunchiness.
Skippy® Creamy Peanut Butter Spread - the smooth, creamy cousin of Skippy® Super Chunk® - and our favourite.
