Crunchy, dehydrated peas are a great kid snack

Whitney of Rookie Moms wrote to me about an ideal toddler snack food I had been planning to write about myself:

I can't promise this will work for everyone, but I have been giving my toddler "Just Peas" as a snack. These organic dehydrated peas are easy to store and serve. Put them in whatever container you'd normally put Cheerios in.  My son thinks of peas as a fun snack and actually asks for them. [My son did too, at that age. We called the "crunchy peas." -- Ed.]

The Just Tomatoes company makes corn, bananas, strawberries and other fruits and veggies too.

J. loves the rasberries and mangos from Just Fruit -- we'll have to try the peas, too.

My son LOVES dehydrated fruit! Target's Market Pantry brand carries dried strawberries (high in vitamin C), raspberries, and "tropical mix." They're a lot cheaper than the "Just Peas" brand.

crispy dried veggies are great for kids, and i love them too!!

The latest craze at our house is frozen peas and corn. They eat it like candy! My kids are 3 yrs and 15 months. They won't eat cooked peas anymore.
