Beautiful breakfast…

I love pancakes. I do. I do! =) I also love fruit of all kinds and peanut butter and so… imagine my delight when I saw what was for breakfast! This made me happy indeed. So happy…I felt I had to share some pictures of this beautiful breakfast with you.

Pancakes and Fruit Medley (YUMMY!)

fruit

Fruit Medley (watermelon, strawberries, honeydew melon, and cantaloupe--all locally grown!)

As it happens…we found that Jif (our favorite peanut butter) has an all-natural kind of peanut butter…so we thought we’d try. I was a little worried it would be weird or yucky, but was pleasantly surprised. It is excellent and I feel good about eating it without all the strange additions. It tastes really good. Here, read about it at the Jif site.

I put it on my pancakes and YUMMY! It was really good. I couldn’t really taste the difference which is a bonus, right?

    I saw that jif, but I have not bought peanut butter since we figured out N was allergic to peanuts…

    Thanks for reading and commenting anyways. It makes perfect sense why you would not keep it in your house! Good papa!

    Mmm. . . peanut butter on pancakes. I just found this list of uses for peanut butter and I don’t think putting it on pancakes was on there. I’ll have to suggest that to them. Check it out http://www.benefits-of-resveratrol.com/uses-for-peanuts.html

    I am sad about that. I love peanut butter. I hope he grows out of it somehow. Babies do that sometimes.

  5. Meg Says:

    How do you know he is allergic anyways?

  6. Terence Says:

    He had a serious breakout one time, and the only diet change we can think of is that we gave him peanut butter. I admit I am not 100% sure he is allergic to peanuts, but I don’t exactly want to use him to be sure if he is. I figure when he is over 2 years old he will be old enough for a full allergen test and we will know then.

    Peanuts make the top of the big 8 list of food allergies but there really is no definitive answer to this question. Much depends on your family history. If you or anyone in your child’s family has a food allergy or allergic type disorder (like asthma or eczema) or if your child has had a food allergy in the past, then you should wait to introduce peanuts and peanut butter. How long? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, you should wait until your child is 3 years old.

    If there is none of the above in you or your child’s history, however, then peanut butter can be a healthy addition to the diet when your child turns 1 year old. Just be sure to avoid giving big spoonfuls of peanut butter and never give children under 3 years of age whole peanuts because these pose a choking hazard.

    So it would seem you may have just introduced it too early to your little guy.

    It may be, M’s family does have a history of eczema and N has it also. I didn’t read that specific article until you posted it, but I thought it might have been introduced early. N had reacted to bananas at about 8-9 months but has no allergic reaction to them now. He likes eating them =)

    So I am hoping that he will eventually get to enjoy peanut butter.

    A recent study here in the UK found that some people with a nut allergy can under a guided programme become tolerant to nuts.
