Peanut is one of the leading causes of fatal and near-fatal food allergic reactions in the United States, and the prevalence of peanut allergies in children has more than tripled since 1997. While these facts are alarming, a research study published in JAMA Pediatrics suggests that pregnant women who do not have a peanut/legume allergy can reduce the risk of their child developing this allergy if they eat more peanuts during pregnancy.
Pregnant women who are allergic to nuts should not consume them during pregnancy, but non-allergenic mothers should no longer avoid eating peanuts during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as they are a good source of protein and folic acid.
Once your baby is born, when should you start introducing peanut butter and other allergenic foods into your baby’s diet? It depends on whether or not your child has had eczema and/or food allergies, but you should always discuss introducing allergenic foods into your child’s diet with your pediatrician first. Children with eczema have a higher incidence of asthma as well as environmental and food allergies. It is even possible, although, not universal, that food allergies can flare eczema, especially during infancy.
Do not give your baby peanuts, as they are a severe choking hazard. It is recommended to introduce peanut-containing products by thinning-out out a small amount of peanut butter in yogurt or cereal, or dissolve peanut butter puffs in breast milk or formula and then feed it to your baby by spoon. Start off by giving your baby small doses, and then gradually increase the amount if there are no signs of an allergic reaction.
CCP’s Nutrition Services provides counseling and information on food allergies. Speak with your CCP pediatrician for more information.
