Okay, I admit it: I love to eat my baby's snacks. The other day I was at Henry's Farmers Market and I wandered over to the baby aisle. The Earth's Best organic cookies and crackers were on sale and so I picked up a box of Organic Crunchin' Crackers and a box of Organic Letter of the Day Cookies. Well, we got home and the baby started fussing. I opened the box of Crunchin' Crackers and gave him one. It calmed him down a little so I gave him another one. And then I decided to try one myself. It was crunchy all right...and buttery...and amazingly good. I ate another one. Then I glanced at the Letter of the Day cookies. "We're not even going to go there" I thought to myself. And we didn't - because let's just say that it hasn't even been a week and the Crunchin' Crackers are no more. I feel kind of bad about that. I don't even want to know how good the cookies are. Actually, I've had the cookies before. They come in two flavors: Very Vanilla and Oatmeal Cinnamon. The Very Vanilla ones are really good, but fortunately they're a bit heavy and so you don't feel the urge to eat more than a couple at a time. This last trip I bought the Oatmeal Cinnamon flavor, and they are staying put on the shelf for now.
Even before I discovered these wonderful (and supposedly healthy) snacks by Earth's Best, I was "stealing" food from the baby. I eat his Cheerios all the time. I hadn't had Cheerios since I was a kid, and when I gave them to him for the first time I was amazed at how good they tasted. The same goes for Ritz crackers. Apparently they were my favorite crackers as a baby. I can see why. And don't even get me started on Arrowroot cookies. I wonder if any other moms eat their baby's snacks, or if I'm alone in doing so. Anyone want to own up? What's your favorite baby snack?
