    My mom made some cookies with crunchy peanut butter in them-- is it safe for them to have crunchy peanut butter yet? They eat creamy PB all the time, so I'm not worried about nut allergies. I'd think the nuts would be small enough to not be a choking hazard, right?

    Uh oh... yet another thing that I probably do wrong. I let my girls have crunchy nut-butters at about 18 months old. They also eat cashew halves and pieces of walnuts without any problem, but maybe I was supposed to wait. Sigh!

    I've been giving crunchy peanut butter since the girls were about 18 months...no problems here, thank goodness. I haven't really tried whole or halve nuts yet, so I don't know how they'd do with that.

    Is there something I don't know about crunchy peanut butter? The cookies are probably a bigger choking hazard than the peanut butter, I would think anyway.

    I can't see any reason why it would be a choking hazard -- the pieces are so small.

    My kids have never had anything but crunchy peanut butter because that's the kind their parents buy. I give it to Ethan already (he's 13 months) with no problems. I agree with pp's, the bits of peanut are far too small to be a problem.

    I don't see any reason why they can't have crunch peanut butter. My kids have been eating nuts/peanuts for over a year at least.

    Ok good- I figured it was probably fine, I've just kept all nut and nut pieces away so far... but I'm paranoid like that! :blush:
