I have discovered a snack secret...

I legitamely thought i was on /r/1200isjerky for a second.
Hahah no, I know it seems like a crackers suggestion but there are some really good snacks with a surprising amount in the pack!
I’m all about the baby yogurt drops, myself.
I buy baby snacks all the time and I do not have children lol. My favorite is the Gerber vanilla puffs! Great for mindless snacking :)
Oh man, I am addicted to the kiddyliciois veggie straws. They are so good!
What's the price like?
Not too bad usually, same sort of price as many snacks. Round our way at least. We just get them from the local supermarket.
I discovered a range of kids frozen meals for 250 calories. They are basically mini adult meals (cottage pie, spaghetti and meatballs, butter chicken and rice, etc) just in a mini portion and like you said with lots of hidden veggies and low in salt and sugar. So good for when you want a ‘meal’ or decent snack but only have 250 cals left for the day!
Totally agree! Also those tiny little pots of kids yogurts are only like 50 cals each and perfect for satisfying a post-dinner sweet craving.
I like the little cheese puffs that come In a can, im guilty of eating more of those than my kids..
Thanks for posting this! I have wondered about doing the same. I do buy kids (not baby) snacks sometimes and love how much lower calorie they are.
It's so good isn't it!? Low calorie and they still taste pretty good. Although, I always avoid the ones with banana!
I tried to buy some, but my bf was judging me so hard lol. I didn't want to bring shame on the house, so I guess I'll stick with eating half of regular snack bars
>I guess I'll stick with eating half of regular snack bars
Something like a Fig Newton or a Nature's Bakery bar is good option without resorting to Sesame Street-themed food.
Urgh, never works for me. Way to easy to eat the whole thing!
Wow, why would your boyfriend judge you? That's rough.
The boyfriend probably just thought it was silly and unnecessary, but baby food has also been a pro-ana diet suggestion for a long time.
Neither of those reasons are any excuse to judge someone's food choices. In fact its one of the things that can lead to disordered eating in the first place. Food policing isn't ok. And let's just stand on the side of statistics that shows this probably isn't a pro ana issue.
> Neither of those reasons are any excuse to judge someone's food choices.
Buying baby-branded food *is* weird and pointless; buy regular food and try portion control. A lot of manufactured baby food isn't even necessary for actual babies!
And if making a passing comment about food in any way is a crushing form of judgment for you, you're the one with issues. It's actually a red flag if an adult starts eating Gerber to save 50 calories ffs.
I think your emotional response says a lot more about how you feel about this topic than I ever could. Byeeeeeeeeee.
... they make salted *crisps* for babies now?!? Definitely better off going into adult stomachs. Would be best if they didn't exist at all.
