I used to have sunflower & flaxseeds with my cereal each morning. I also had some nuts - now only a couple of times but did eat a good bit of peanut butter (at least once a week). I didn't want to exclude them completely so LO would never have tasted them & then might have a reaction to them later on. He is still too young for nuts but hope that he won't be allergic to them

I think it's just peanuts they say to stay away from Sunflower seeds are actually recommended, they're a very good source of nutrition and good for your digestion

There was one chain of shops had some brand of sunflower seeds recalled a few weeks ago, due to a salmonella scare, but other than that, there's no problem wiht them, or nuts other than peanuts.
