Podcast Episode 4: Crunchy snacks that are healthy and appeal to fussy eaters
Most of our kids, well certainly mine do love crunchy snacks. In fact one of mine would live off crackers if he could!
The most popular ones are the beige kind like breadsticks, crisps & crackers. Whilst there is nothing wrong with these foods, as all food is good food.
