April is Peanut Butter month.
The health benefits to Peanut butter are high levels of monounsaturated fats and resveratrol. Peanut butter (and peanuts) provide protein, vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, arginine, and high levels of the antioxidant p-coumaric acid.
This is a food item children can use on their own to make nutritious snacks and lunch. The children of the families who receive peanut butter in their food boxes are often on their own to fix snacks and lunch due to working parents.
