I understand that most people don't like the idea of peanut butter, I just disagree. I gave my 20 month old PB when she was 14 months. She wasn't eating and it was important to me that she get some nutrition. I watched her for 3 days after and if there was any sign that she was allergic, then that would have been it. She loved it and still to this day asks for it. To me....being too careful sometimes is bad. For lunch I usually give the PB and sometimes give just fruit and veggies. She gives me such a hard time about the veggies for dinner so I give them to her for lunch. I also try to give her things to dip them in like lite french dressing or even italian. She loves it and eats everything on her plate. Good Luck.
