NPB video shows how to introduce peanuts to babies

The National Peanut Board created a short, fast-paced recipe video that illustrates several recommended ways to introduce peanuts to babies. Check out the video and related infographics.

The recipes, including thinned peanut butter, powdered peanut butter in applesauce, and peanut butter pureed with strawberries, follow new early introduction guidelines for peanuts from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. The guidelines encourage introducing peanuts to infants as early as 4-6 months, to prevent peanut allergy.
The video is on nationalpeanutboard.org and peanutallergyfacts.org has reached more than 1.2 million people, including registered dietitian nutritionists and health organizations like health departments that have shared the video with their audiences.
