Healthy Korean Baby Snacks

When Jian started getting her teeth we wanted to give her snacks that didn’t have sugar and a lot of sodium. When you look at the ingredients and info on even baby snacks they have a lot of sugar and salt. Jian has a lifetime to get her parents’ sugar and salt addictions. We wanted her to learn to appreciate the real taste of natural food before then.

EJ found a source to get rice snacks naturally flavored with spinach, sweet potatoes, and Korean pear. She cottoned on to them right away. Six months later, and they’re still her favorite snacks.

They come in two forms, pellets and sticks. The pellets look like Rice Krispies, but they are soft, not crispy. Whenever she’s sitting down, it’s a good way to keep Jian occupied practicing her fine motor skills in picking up each pellet.

The sticks are wide and fit easily in a toddler’s hand. They’re not completely bland. They have those natural flavorings, and they subtly come out. She really loves these, even to this day where she’s eating more flavored foods, like her beloved cheese.

And they’re fun. (This was also Jian’s first ride on a high speed train.)

They’re called 맘스쌀과자 Mom’s Ssal Gwaja (Mom’s Rice Cookies). Our order from six months ago is still lasting.
