Gravity-defying peanut butter on toast

My daughter has recently discovered the delights of solid food, her favourite being little squares of toast topped with peanut butter. Today I was encouraging her to pick up the food from the plate herself, and on the whole she obliged.

She was quite perplexed, however, when instead of pinching a piece between two fingers, she stuck her index finger out on its own, the square sticking to it through the adhesive power of peanut butter. For a few moments of giddiness on her part, I think she thought she’d overcome gravity, as the square rose and fell with her finger. Maybe she had—who am I to argue?

    You’re obviously ignoring the current old wives tale that peanuts (in any form) should not be served to under-twos for fear of developing an allergy later – or is it in case they have an allergy now? Can’t remember.

    Anyway, was this an active decision or were you not aware of the concerns some people have?

    Wait till she discovers the adhesive properties of golden syrup, it’ll blow her mind.

    Nice to hear how my grand-daughter is doing. Niknej is probably right in his concerns, but it would appear that M is not affected by nuts. Why not try Marmite? You loved it, not so your brother!xxx
