peanut butter Lock Rss

does anyone know the age u can introduce peanut butter?
Hi jacksonsmummy,

I can't remember where I read it but I think it's recommended not to introduce any peanut products until kids are like 4 years old??? I don't know, I'll probably try it before then though - it seems a bit extreme to me, especially seeing that we have no family history of such allergies.

I watched a tv program a while back (i think it was today tonight or something like that) and they were doing allergy testing in a controlled environment like a hospital so if the kids had a severe reaction they could be treated straight away. If you were worried about your little man having a reaction you might be able to ring your hospital or clinic and see if this controlled testing is available in your area.

Sorry I couldn't remember exact details - goodluck smile
