Now that Nate has a somewhat stable nap schedule that doesn't include the stroller, I like to make the most of those windows in between naps and get out of the house. This often means eating and/or snacking on the go. At ten and a half months, Nate is now facing forward in the big boy stroller and I feel limited in what I can give him when I'm not doling it out piece by piece. He's not at the point where I can give him a cup of cheerios and stroll about the neighborhood. So the ideal snack is something he can hold and munch. If we arrive where we're going without looking like a pie was thrown in his face, even better. While I like the Earth's Best Organic Teething Biscuits (Nate loves the wheat ones), they get everywhere and the mush dries into a caked on mess pretty quickly. So I was so pleased when my friend turned me onto Organic Baby Mum-Mum Rice Rusks. They melt in the mouth, so I'm not so worried about choking and they're fun to eat. They come in packs of two and Nate always signs for MORE after he eats the first one. Truth be told, my husband thinks they are disgusting (my friend and I disagree and think they're fun to eat), but Nate likes them and that's all that matters, isn't it? We've only had the original flavor, but I'm keeping my eye out the other flavors, like Banana & Rice.
We need more options though! What's your child's favorite snack on the go?
