I know peanuts are a nut allergy thing, but why else aren't you mean tto give them to small children? I'm eating some peanuts and raisins which ds is eyeing up but I know I shouldn't give him some just don't know why!!

I'd say choking but they're small - pea sized and we don't ban peas do we?

why? I unerstand grapes and all but a grape cut in half is still bigger than a peanut.

peas are squidgey.

also a small child is more likely to chew and break up a pea or grape... peanut is easier to just swallow by mistake!
