    Hint of Salt Wheat Thins. BAM – problem solved! Low in sodium, good source of fiber, delicious and not crumbly (so less likely to mess up your car). You’re welcome!

    my daughter loves crackers too yet I do agree with Mike. I’m currently feeding her lunch. She gets to hold and self feed a few crackers, while I spoon feed quinoa and strawberries between bites. That way she’s happy and healthy. ;)

    I’m not deaf but I have 2 comments. 1 reply to Rachel and 1 general note.
    Rachel, I think most people would finger spell graham but if it’s a very common thing for you and your child, you could do a letter substitute sign. Like signing cracker but instead of a full fist, use a “g”.
    The general comment I wanted to share is because the comment that many babies love crackers. They love them because they are extremely high in simple carbohydrates. Something similar to sugar, which modern science has proven that increased amounts of added sugars and simple carbs increases risk for diabetes and obesity. And the earlier we give this type of food to our babies, the more addicted they become to sugary sweet foods and drinks. Hope this informs at least one person.

    My baby loves her crackers! It’s a sign she does a lot. We just started giving her graham crackers too, so I was wondering if you had a suggestion to differentiate between the two. Thank you! :-)
