    I've heard people say not to give them peanut butter...but I've heard others say it's okay if there is no history of nut allergy in the family.
    In any case, I've given my 15 month old all three

    Yep fine but jam and honey are pretty high sugar and I heard peanut butter has lots of pesticides.

    DS eats heaps of toast. I put tahini, cashew butter, cream cheese, cottage cheese, avocado on. I just thought I could also do mashed banana.

    All are fine unless you have a family history of nut allergies , pp was correct peanuts are highly sprayed with pesticides and commercial peanut butter has unnecessary added salt and fat that just makes it an unhealthy choice so try buy organic peanut butter or make your own! My DS loves macadamia and almond butter, very nutritious !

    Oh it was just asking about what to put on a stirfry for DS. I thought you'd be good to ask as you know so much about food. I have a problem with PMs, sometimes they don't go through.

    Sorry OP, didn't mean to hijack.

    I thought honey was a no-no before the age of one because of infant botulism? (sp).

    Peanut butter is ok, just the nuts can be of concern if there is a history of allergies. Jam is ok too except that it contains excess sugar.

    Some sandwich toppings my DS likes:

    Avocado
    Chicken or tuna with cream cheese
    Jam on occasion (although he just licks it off )
    Tomato and cheese
    Ham and tomato

    He doesn't like honey or peanut butter.

    MH, we do stirfry with veggies, either tempeh, fish, prawns or chicken and use coconut oil, fry ginger and garlic add meat, then veggies then organic tamari ( wheat free soy) and organic hoi sin sauce and then add water to make it a bit more saucy! I always add a splash of sesame oil at the end and sesame seeds- I usually do rice noodles or soba noodles as he can hold them ! ( sorry to hijack thread Op)
