Despite warnings to wait until children are four-years-old to give them peanut products, kids are being exposed to peanuts at an earlier age.
Researchers at Duke University found the average age of first peanut exposure from 1995 to 1997 was 22 to 24 months. However, in the years between 2000 and 2006 the average was only 14 to 18 months.
The study's authors say the number of peanut allergies has doubled, possibly because of early exposure.
