  • I dont see why it would be bad...... protein is good for him and as long as it has obviously been identified that he does not have peanut allergies let him go for it. Me and my 5 & 3 yr old do LOL peanut butter is awesome momma!

    ...After i finish this spoonful of peanut butter, of course.

  • No, mine does it too, it has lots of protien which is good for them....thay also have a bunch of fat ofcorse, but as long as they burn it off - and trust me, they do :-} - I don't see anything wrong w/ it :)

  • Only bad if he puts the spoon back in the jar and goes for a second lick. That would put germs in the jar. Otherwise, lick away! It's healthy!

  • No, I'd say you're an awesome mom. That's the best way to eat peanut butter.

  • I don't see why it's bad? I mean if he was allergic to it then yeah bad mom lol, but since he isn't it's ok.
