Observations of an Apprehensive Eater:
I would love for our daughter to take to Triscuit crackers, so I decided to buy a box to try. The ingredients list is so simple: whole grain wheat, vegetable oil, and salt!
For a snack cracker, this scores pretty high on my list of dietitian-approved items. Plus, they now sell the organic variety of Triscuit at Costco for those of you who have families who will actually eat them. Since she isn't so sure about them, we stuck with a standard sized box to start. This will give us several excused for repeated exposure, even if this initial attempt wasn't met with much enthusiasm.
When trying new products with toddlers, I try to make sure it is something my husband and I will otherwise eat if our daughter doesn't. This lessens the frustration around "wasting food" and also allows us to role model to her how we eat and enjoy them as part of our healthy diets.
