    Graham crackers are known to rot teeth.  Unless you intend on brushing your child’s teeth soon after, I wouldn’t advise them.  In fact my child’s preschool does not allow dried fruit/raisins for the same reason (although graham cookies are worse).  And why pudding and graham cookies when there are so many other options?  Fill them up with good/whole foods– they eat so little as is.

    What about regular old popcorn? Stove top or air popped is healthier than the microwave variety.

    Hmmm.  A little suspicious of these suggestions.  Children (particularly very young children) need much more fat than adults so I would not suggest any kind of fat-free food (what’s in them anyway?)  Sugar, on the other hand is something that should be avoided and many low-fat foods have increased sugar content to make up for the flavor lost in the fat.

    Graham crakers are fine in moderation in my opinion. The melt easy in the mouth and they taste good period.

  • Jen

    What an amazing idea! Awesome and perfect for the kids! This is very interactive and educational. We did a Color experiment out of the same materials you used. You should check it out! :)

    Saying graham crackers are known to rot teeth is a bit of an over statement. It’s not specifically graham crackers it’s all foods containing carbohydrates and starches (chips, crackers, cereal) that can promote tooth decay.  They are low in fat and calories and if you purchase ones from a health food store you can avoid excess sugar and HFCS, and benefit from the whole wheat. Children are born with a taste for sweet things and graham crackers is certainly a better choice than loading them up on cookies. Besides, you should be teaching your children to brush their teeth after meals/ snacks anyways.
