Peanut butter: the good, the bad and the alternatives

Jan. 22, 2016

Peanut butter is consumed in 94 percent of U.S. households. In fact, the average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before he or she graduates high school. Although it’s packed with protein, some peanut butter varieties also have added sugar, sodium and preservatives — so it’s best to check the labels.

Patti Ennis, a registered dietitian at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, sets the record straight — and offers three tasty nut butter alternatives for those with peanut allergies.
