Why peanut butter?

The average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before graduating from high school. Peanut butter is a good source of protein and other essential vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin E, niacin and magnesium.

It is an economical source of protein and is a wonderful food to pack on the go because it won’t spoil as quickly as most animal proteins will.
