Tips for making sure you have the freshest and healthiest peanut butter:
- Ideally, if you could buy your own nuts and grind them up, you can be sure there are no chemicals, preservatives, sugars, or anything else you don’t want your kids eating. And if you want to add a little sugar, try this delicious recipe for nut butter!
- An alternative, and just as healthy: Look for markets that have a peanut butter dispenser/ grinder. This has been the cheapest way I’ve seen to get all natural peanut butter (I believe my store has it for .10 per ounce).
- Lastly, when buying commercial peanut butter, as always check the ingredient list. If peanuts are the only thing listed, BINGO! Buy it!
