We're slowly introducing a little wheat to the baby's solid food experience and are looking for some organic crackers -- like the Pepperidge Farms "Goldfish" crackers, but organic.

Anyone know of any?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if they sell organic goldfish. We buy a big box of Goldfish every month though. My boys love them.

No Goldfish here, but we like Kashi's honey sesame TLC crackers. They also have a plain version sans honey if your babe isn't old enough to have honey.

That's what I'm looking for! I love the Annie's graham bunnies, but they have honey in them -- I didn't know there were cheesey ones!

Thanks

I like the Annie's bunnies, too. I also like the Earth's Best cheese flavored crackers, they remind me of organic Cheez-Its.

I'm pretty sure honey is okay if it's in something that's cooked too. The problem with honey is that it contains botchilism spores which would be killed during the cooking process of any processed food. I think the concern is with raw honey.

I could be wrong, though

They sell them at my Target even...1.99 a box, cheaper than my local health food store by a mile!

We're another Annie's fan here too! We also buy these organic flax seed crackers, but for the life of me I can't remember their name. And wouldn't you know it, I just through the empty box away so I can't go look. It's a white and green box. lol

I've got to say, as much of a quack as I think the author of the "Super Baby Food" book is... she's got some GREAT cracker recipes! The trick is to roll them reaaaaally thin, but they rock... DH ate most of the last batch of cheesy ones I made (w/ yummy extra sharp vermont cheese!).

Just an idea if you feel like baking. There's only a few ingredients so they're quick to make.

I meant to share this recipe earlier in my response but completely went :

Anyway, my sister found this on someone's blog before. It's for vegan goldfish, and I am sure you could use organice ingredients for most of it!

i bought the annie's cheddar bunnies too, but my DD seems to have a problem eating them. I think they are too dense for her. She had some of her buddy's goldfish crackers and ate them just fine, so we bought some of those for her. FYI the cheddar bunnies are not completely organic, only some of the ingredients are. I am saving the cheddar bunnies for when she gets older.

They have organic chedder duckies. They definitely have the goldfish flavor. We first found them at Costco - they sell them in 36 individual serving size bags. We like the other flavors, too. The lemon ones are really good!

Those are another one of our favorites, too! They sell them individually at my Target (in little snack boxes similar to those Barnum animal cracker boxes) and the variety pack at Costco is great too (except I find myself eating them more than my dd!) The lemon ones - YUM!! They are my favorite!

I was just about to post exactly that. I think DD likes the taste, but she can't actually ingest them yet. Other crackers kind of dissolve in her mouth after she sucks on them and gums them, but Annie's whole wheat bunnies stay like firm little pellets and she ends up spitting them back out. We're going to try them again when she's a little older.

Do they have the same consistency as Goldfish? I'm a little concerned hearing the Annie's ones don't dissolve readily.

----

Regarding the honey thing, I though even cooked honey was bad, as it didn't necessarily kill off the baddies. I read somewhere it had to be pasteurized to be okay if cooked in something for a baby? Can someone else here offer info on this or should I start a new thread maybe?

Thanks!!!

The Healthy Handfuls are MUCH more like goldfish when it comes to dissolving than the Annies are, IMO.

We do Annies cheddar bunnies too..
Something totally different but still a hit is Pirates booty they dissolve really easily and are a big fave with me and the boys.

My boys LOVE Annie's whole wheat bunny crackers - tho watch out, the flavored bunnies are not whole wheat.

Also the Kashi TLC crackers are fantastic. And we like triscuits even though they aren't organic.
