Peanut Butter! Most of us grew up on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and continue to use it in our daily adult lives. Not only is it delicious but it’s also packed with nutrition and good fats.

Peanut butter provides protein, vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, resvertrol, arginine, and high levels of the antioxidant p-coumaric acid.

Blessing the Children has started the initiative to provide each child in the sponsorship program with a jar of peanut butter each month, in addition to their normal food support. This started last month (March) and was a huge hit with the children. They loved the peanut butter and we loved the nutrition it provided them.

In addition to filling the children with nutrition and good fats, the purchase of close to 200 jars of peanut butter each month with be supporting some local families in Ethiopia who grind and jar this peanut butter from home and we know exactly what is going into the peanut butter. No chemicals or additives.

We are looking forward to continuing the peanut butter distribution every month and appreciate everyone who sponsors a child to make this possible! We couldn’t do what we do for these precious children, without you!
