Observations of an Apprehensive Eater:

My two year old is pretty excited about these "Cheetos." Mind you we actually have never had Cheetos in our house, she is aware of what they are apparently from the world around her. While I still consider actual "Cheetos" a fun food we save for when she may be exposed to them out and about (say with her older cousins, at a party, etc.), these off-variety by Beanitos offer a great alternative. I know the cracker/crunchy+salty element of every meal is usually the first or second to get eaten, right alongside the fresh fruit. So it matters to me how healthy these snack cracker options are. With Beanitos having a more natural ingredient list than the original Cheetos, plus the added nutrition of being made from beans, these are a safe "sometimes food" for anyone who craves these cheesy puffs.

P.S. Just for fun, a little fact about me -- When pregnant with Claire, I was OBSESSED with Cheetos! Being so nauseous in the early months, I most definitely gave into more cravings than I would like to admit to. I guess she tasted them in the amniotic fluid and has been hooked ever since ;-)
