The peanut go-ahead
JD had his 2-year check-up at the beginning of August, at which point we got the all-clear to introduce peanut butter. However, since we’ve gotten into a routine with our eating habits and menus, I find we still haven’t tried it several weeks later.
Over the past few months, we’d slowly been testing the allergy waters by putting pb into some dishes and giving him bites (the biggest hit was a banana-pudding pie with a graham cracker and peanut butter crust). So far it looks like we’re not going to have any adverse reaction.
The taste buds could be a different story. After reading fellow blogger Marcela’s take on the big PB letdown posted here a few months ago, I¬† am wondering if JD will turn up his nose at the childhood staple.
I’m planning to take the plunge this weekend with a traditional PB&J. We’ll see.
