more and more kids are having nut allergies, now i have heard that an expectant mother should eat peanuts. This is done to introduce the nut to the unborn child and so reduce the likelihood of said child developing a nut allergy. Is this correct?

If yes, how does that work...if not why not?

I would think if it is true, that the peanut butter would count!
