Recipes: Reduce Your Daughter’s Risk of Benign Breast Disease with These Healthy Peanut Butter Snacks

Recently, a study funded by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and conducted by Dr. Graham Colditz in St. Louis revealed that eating peanuts and peanut butter at a young age could reduce the risk of benign breast disease in adulthood. That said, how do you cram more peanuts and peanut butter into your daughter’s diet without going into full-on dessert modeand/or just burning her out on the legume altogether?


Well, instead of providing junk for snacks, try incorporating peanuts and peanut butter into healthier snack options. Don’t think that the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is the only option here. Peanut butter goes well with many fruits and vegetables, like bananas, apples and celery, in addition to crackers and granola. If you are feeling a little more adventurous, try incorporating it into homemade smoothies or try your hand at a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal bars.
