We love peanut butter…
Peanut is actually not a nut but legumes but because of the nut at the end of the word people tag it as nut family. Whatever or wherever peanut comes from my poppets do not care they just love peanut. Their love for peanut butter is out of this world.
I am so lucky non of my kids are allergic to nut, they eat their nuts with no worries. I don’t usually pack nut in school lunch box because of other kids that may be allergic to nuts.
My kids love dipping their apple in peanut butter or peanut butter yogurt dip. We also use it on bread, toast, and tortilla.
