The inventors of MyPeanut, Dr. William Scott and Dr. David Scott are a father-son team trained in allergy and immunology. Like many physicians, they now commonly recommend introducing peanut and tree nuts into the diet of infants and toddlers. The reason is simple: research suggests that babies that eat nuts early on may have a lower incidence of nut allergy later in life. However, as Dr. David Scott learned when he had his first infant of his own, it is not easy to find ways of feeding an infant peanut. Tree nuts were even more challenging!
Soon, Dr. David Scott was up at night blending organic nuts with various fruit purees, working on getting the right flavor that would appeal to his baby’s palate. He reviewed papers to try to get the perfect amount of nut and worked on consistency and taste so that his infant would enjoy the nutty snack.
Before long, his baby was introduced to one of his first foods, an eight-nut mixture know as MyPeanut™ that tastes great, is full of organic whole foods, and contains natural nut proteins that Dr. Scott wanted to make sure his baby was exposed to early in life.
