More and more children are becoming allergic to peanut butter in the past 10 years and continues to grow, causing schools to become nut-free and parents to become more worried. There have been efforts to decrease the rate of children developing the allergy to begin with in order to lessen the caution.

Studies have shown that if you introduce peanuts to children when they are 5 months old, it significantly reduces the prevalence of peanut allergies. Allergist Dr. David Erstein is developing a system that involves introducing peanuts to children at the appropriate time to prevent the allergy.
