Introducing solid foods to your baby is a fun milestone – for baby and parents! It’s exciting to watch them discover flavors and textures and to develop food preferences.
When I first became a mom 16 years ago, the recommendation at the time was to delay the introduction of peanuts until after age 2 to avoid peanut allergies. That recommendation has since been updated according to recent research. So, when my youngest son, Ledger, began eating solids several months ago, I had to learn the new guidelines for introducing peanuts.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommend introducing peanuts to infants, especially those who are high-risk*, starting as early as 4-6 months of age. The recommendations are based on the 2015 Learning Early About Peanut Allergies (LEAP) study, which showed an 86 percent reduction in the development of peanut allergy in infants who ate peanut food compared to those who did not.
Puffworks baby puffs were created in response to the LEAP study. Puffworks baby organic peanut butter puffs are USDA-Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Kosher. A healthier and easier option that is also great for baby-led weaning (BLW)!
Puffworks baby puffs were the perfect option for my son, Ledger. He started eating solid foods using the baby-led weaning approach – foregoing traditional pureed baby foods, and instead, eating appropriately sized solid foods. Peanut butter can be a choking risk to babies and toddlers unless spread very thinly. Puffworks baby puffs were a great choice for us because they are easy to hold, they dissolve quickly when eaten (to avoid choking!), and are low in sodium. Puffworks baby puffs offer a way to take the stress and mess out of early peanut introduction.
In addition to their baby puffs, Puffworks makes organic peanut butter puffs the whole family will love! All their puffs are USDA-Certified Organic and made with simple ingredients. In fact, their original is just peanuts, corn (meal), and a dash of salt. The other flavors – Honey, Dark Chocolate, and Strawberry PB&J are sweeter but have 4g or less of added sugar. They're the perfect snacks to take on the go – the individual-sized bags fit perfectly in a diaper bag, which makes them excellent to take to the park with us! Moms and Dads, you’ll love these delicious snacks, too. Our family is obsessed with these yummy, organic peanut butter puffs. They're big brother and baby brother approved!
I have been compensated and received product samples for this review. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
*Those who are high risk for peanut allergies should consult with their healthcare provider before introducing peanuts.
