I apologize- I did not read that your DS has SPD, I was out of line with that comment. Is there any more natural alternative out there that would be acceptable?

Oh, I'm just particularly cynical and grumpy today. Sorry about the snark. But some part of me does think people would be more likely to stop eating them because of some sensational rumour, like the sparks are ground up rats, than the facts that they contain food with poor nutritional content, and are extremely overpackaged and putting additional stress on the environment and our resources.
I remember when Lunchables first came out. I was amazed that Kraft thought people would be so gullible to spend so much money on that little bit of food in that great big package. I mean, if you want to feed your kid lunch meat and crackers, why not buy lunch meat and crackers in big containers and save some money, and put less packaging into the landfill? I'm still shocked that Lunchables caught on, and other companies have copied them. I really don't get it.
I would say that any toddler that doesn't want their own parent (or anyone else who is caring for them for that matter) to *touch* their food has some issues I would be addressing.
There isn't a whole lot of value in those pseudo-foods. I would definitely be working on getting something more worthwhile in that LO. These are some of the most critical years of growth and development and those are the building blocks that you are giving his/her body to work with???? Yikes. JMO though.
