Many parents are aware of the benefits of introducing common allergens early, but keeping peanut foods in baby’s diet is an important piece of the prevention puzzle. Parents had few ready-to-serve choices in the past, but options continue to grow and expand with some exciting new entries in the peanut-for-baby category.
One year after transitioning from the “Choosy Moms Choose Jif” consumer marketing campaign to “That Jif’ing Good”, The J.M. Smucker Company’s Jif brand has been hard at work making sure shelves are stocked and giving consumers even more ways to love and use peanut butter with the launch of two new products.
As the president and owner of Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter company, Kimmi Wernli noticed a snacking trend and took one of her family’s favorite recipes and launched a new product.

Mission MightyMe co-founders J.J. and Catherine Jaxon are on a mission to help raise up a generation of kids that are free from the burden of food allergies. And they’re doing it with the launch of a peanut puff that makes it easy and “normal” to feed peanuts and other allergenic foods to infants.

There’s little room for the word “try” in Krystina Murawski’s vocabulary. Born and raised in Westchester County, NY, Murawski says she always gives 110 percent to everything that she does. “I've always been an all or nothing person. I'm either full throttle or no throttle.”
Combine this go-getter attitude with Murawski’s self-described obsession with peanut butter and you have “Noomi” (pronounced “new me”). She launched the brand in April 2018 after working fervently on her own, with friends and an executive chef mentor, Leslie Lampert, to find the right balance of ingredients for what would soon become Noomi organic peanut butter.
