Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is a staple of our children's diet. They eat so much of it, I became concerned about the amounts of trans fats they were consuming. We switched to the messy, but tasty, natural variety several years ago. Then we switched again recently to this more convenient Skippy no-need-to stir. It has no hydrogenated oils or trans fats of any kind. Some contend with the "natural" label because it substitutes palm oil for peanut oil, but there is nothing wrong with palm oil. Also, Skippy tastes great and you can't beat the convenience.

This is so good to know!

I can't stand stirring the natural peanut butter, but fear hydrogenized oils.

BTW, we recently tried Barney Butter (a no-stir, organic almond butter) and it is delicious)!

Yes, we tried Barney Butter too--that stuff is amazing! My kids love it and eat it every day when they come home from school. It is only available in California right now, but a couple friends order it directly from the company

Thanks for the heads up!
