offer it after other foods at lunch and dinner, but I don't really see a huge issue if they eat other things. We buy in bulk at Sam's and my girls ask for a spoonful of peanut butter or pb&j sandwiches or pb toast for breakfast, snacks, or with lunch all the time.

LOL, of the addictions, this one is harmless.....say unless a person with a strongt peanut allergy comes into the pickture.

Let her have it for now :).  At other meals, offer other foods alongside her peanut butter :)

Peanut Butter is an good source of protein and the oil isn't bad either.  Let her go through her PB stage.  My sister was addicted bologna and cheese through out her school career.  At least PB is healthier.  You can put some on celery and then add raisens for "ants on a log" for snack.  With this you have veggie, fruit, and meat.

It is just a stage, all kids go through theirs too.  Just show her different options each day.

I agree, there are definitely worse things.

Add to her peanut butter things like celery or apples that she can dip in it so that she's getting some veggies/variety and make sur eyou offer her other things too.

let her have a little WITH each meal, but make sure it's not all she's eating. If it's a well-rounded meal, she's fine. :) She'll probably get tired of it eventually.

oh, I totally agree with adding things like celery for the "ants on a log" and apples, pretzle sticks, offer it on whole grain waffles or toast, mine love warm buttered toast with pb and honey and cinnamon on it...I ate tons of it when pregnant because I had gestational diabetes and I put it on toast, crackers, waffles, grapes, pretzles, apples, use it in smoothies (a banana, some yogurt and a few hefty spoofuls of peanut butter--some hershey's syrup or cocoa powder if you like the chocolate/pb or chocolate/banana thing)...
