The latest nut butter is nutty, salty, rich, and crunchy, but it’s also packed with vitamins and minerals.
Read moreWhat to look out forWhen looking for a nut butter to buy, you’ll need to consider whether it’s suitable for baby, newborns, or people with digestive problems.
If you want a nutty taste that’s suitable to the baby, look for one with a high fat content.
This will help to lower the chance of choking, while a high protein content will help prevent babies being dehydrated.
The most common types of nut butter are almond, cashew, and pistachio.
They’re all nutty and full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but they have some added calories.
The almonds have a higher fat content than other nut butters, but the fats are concentrated, so there’s a greater chance of a choking hazard.
Cashew nuts are also known for their rich nutty flavour, but you might need to avoid this if you’re allergic to cashews.
