my allergist says that children really shouldn't have peanut butter or honey until they are two! which most pediatritions say 1 yr.

Charlotte is one now, and I give her PB sandwiches on wholemeal bread, cut into dice sized pieces for lunch, with a bit of fruit and some yoghurt, that's all your bases covered. It's great for protien. Remember, no jam or chocolate spreads, way too much sugar for their little bodies to process, and vegemite has alot of salt, so only very little of that.

Sandwiches I make are butter and promite, peanut paste, cream cheese, avocado, canned tuna and whole-egg mayo.

If you're looking to help your child gain weight healthily, I spread Charlotte's bread and toast on both sides, with cream cheese, or butter, and she gets twice as much.

My pediatrician said as young as four months but my son was about ten months when he had peanut butter and has not had it often since then but he ate a PB sandwich yesterday at his birthday party! I would go for it...it is fun to see their faces but definitely watch for reactions!

They say to wait until a year, so here is your chance!!! Start slow to see about allergies and also remember it is STICKY so only use a little. My son has been eating peanut butter for about 2 months now (the doctor wanted him to gain weight) and he just loves it!!!
