Nuts like almonds, cashes, and peanuts are nutritional powerhouses. They’re good sources of healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals, all of which are essential for a healthy nervous system.
The best way to introduce nuts to your child is through butters. However, you do need to be cautious as nuts are a high allergen risk, especially if you have members of your family with nut allergies. You also want to check the ingredients on the label as many nut butters (peanut butter in particular) contain added sugar.
