Mommy Tips: Healthy Toddler Snacks!

Once I heard a story about how awful goldfish crackers are for kids so of course I became deathly paranoid of the day when June finally discovered them. Well, that day finally came... they're EVERYWHERE! So what's a Mom to do as an alternative to unhealthy snacks? Here are a few I've come up with:

1. Carr's Heart Shaped Water Crackers - low in calories, sodium, no fat = winner! (no grade)
2. Frozen blueberries - great in the summer, June loves frozen blueberries which is great because they don't go bad like fresh ones. (A)
3. Annie's Cheddar Bunnies - they looks like goldfish but are better for you. HOWEVER, look closely as there are two kinds. The good kind are the "whole wheat" (pictured here). The other ones are just as bad as the goldfish so STAY AWAY. (B)
4. Cheerios - good old cheerios... that's an easy one. (A-)
5. Graham Crackers - Health Valley Amaranth Graham have a good grade; stay away from the rest. (B)

Check out for the grades as I've listed above. And instead of driving all over town for the specific crackers and bunnies I'm buying them on
