Bamba can be effective for introducing peanuts, but it is two-thirds fat and is high in saturated fat because it contains palm oil. Introducing your baby to the amount of peanut protein recommended by the NIH and AAP would mean you'd need to feed your baby 70 calories of Bamba per day for 3 to 6 months straight!
Peanuts only make up 25% of childhood food allergies, so you'd still miss out on introducing other common allergens such as egg and cow's milk (both of which are difficult to avoid). The newly released USDA Dietary Guideline Report recommends introducing both peanut and egg to a child, beginning as early as 4 months old, during early allergen prevention.
