pb, coconut oil, brewer's yeast, flax- ok for one yr old?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I wanted to try giving peanut butter or almond butter to my one yr old (for example, apple slices with some pb on them), but I am unclear as to whether the current recommendations are to wait to introduce pb, or introduce it sooner, to prevent allergies? If it is ok to give her some, what is the appropriate amount? Also, is it ok to put Brewer's yeast or flaxseed on her veggies, and can she have coconut oil?  Thanks!

We avoid flax for sure, it has extremely high levels of phytoestrogens!  The other stuff is excellent, just fine!  IDK about peanut butter for sure, go with your instincts on that one, but I wouldnt hesitate on almond butter.  We do use peanut butter.  Good alternatives to flax are hempseed and chia seed.  My kids will eat coconut oil and chlorella tablets like candy, and have been for a long time lol.  And we use the Lewis Labs brand brewers yeast only, but I try to add it to our food when I remember, it's a food so I am not worried!
