Re: Eating peanut butter while pregnant?

It's actually not a myth- just something that gets misrepresented. As a nurse, I've done some reading on this and also talked with both my son's allergist and pediatrician re: this. Because we do have a history of food allergies in my family, it was recommended that I avoid peanut butter or any peanut products while pregnant and nursing. Also, it was recommended that my first 2 kids not have PB until they were 2, the current recommendation is that kids with family history of nut allergies not have PB until they are 3.

But again- it only applies to those who have a STRONG family history of food allergies.
