Slide 5

Peanut Butter


A large dollop of peanut butter can be hard for kids to swallow all at once. The safest way to eat it is to spread a thin layer on crackers or bread. It's also a good idea to serve it with something to drink. (Peanuts and peanut butter also pose an allergy risk. Be sure that it's safe for your child to eat before serving.)
