Goldfish

If I say this word, LO comes running from where ever she is and starts pointing and jumping up and down. She is nuts for goldfish crackers.

I, on the other hand, a not so fussy about the salt. She has a big thing for canned black olives as well, which are lightly brined..but still salty. She gets a few of those most days. She also gets a bit of cheese in eggs many days. Since I've been working double time the last two weeks, we've had a few pizzas, pasta dishes with canned sauce. Throw goldfish into her day and she is taking in more sodium than I am comfortable with (nevermind that before she was born my life seemed to be an endless series of salads, labour intensive home cooked meals and sushi plates - since we moved, everything I eat seems to come out of a box).

I'm going to  get back to healthier food this next week - but in the meantime, does anyone have a low salt goldfish option? I was thinking of trying those duck things at Harris Teeters.


Re: Goldfish

  • I honestly do not know if they are any better with the salt, but DS and I will occasionally share a bag of mini-pretzels. He loves pretzels and animal crackers. Today I grabbed a bag of Brothers-All-Natural fruit crisps while waiting in line at a convenient store, and DS devoured them. There's no added sugar, no sodium, gluten-free, etc. I was shocked though how quickly he ate the bag!

  • H loves the Annie's Naturals bunny grahams and graham crackers.  I've given him low-sodium wheat thins, which he really seems to enjoy.  He also likes goldfish and other salty stuff; we try to keep it under control.

  • I guess I just never thought.about it...bad mom alert? Haha. I figure there are worse things for her. She eats them at daycare daily and sometimes at home on weekends, but its.not like we go through a bag a day or anything.

  • I bought some veggie crackers at BRU. They are organic and not too bad with salt.

    V loves goldfish too!

  • I try to find low sodium snacks as well.
    I'm not big on it for myself, and rarely add salt when I cook.

    We actually eat a lot of fruit. DS would eat crackers and cheese, but put the fruit plate out and he devours it.

    I haven't really bought low sodium crackers of any sort. And I've neglected to buy goldfish. MIL probably has a cupboard full of salty, high fat foods for DS.

    :(

    They have low sodium goldfish
    I've never seen them. I'll cruise the online shops and see if I can get some. We were getting the whole grain ones, but I think the nutritional benefit there is pretty minimal.

    The saltiness never really occurred to  me until she was constipated after a particularly goldfish heavy day.
  • Not sure about salt but in addition to goldfish Sean loves pirates booty
    I'm so going to try this. That used to be my favourite drunk food.
  • What is pirates booty?? I've never heard of that

  • Kmartinrvt13 It's puffed corn-based snack that's mixed with veggies. It's like veggie straws with less oil and salt. I used to get this kind with Einstein on the front of the package - white cheddar puffs, or something like that. It's amazing!

    I used to find it in every deli and grocery store in the NE. Not sure what the distribution is like.
  • we do Annies bunny cheddar crackers and grahams.  She also loves flax seed crackers from costco (which are salty) with hummus
  • good for you for noticing!

    cheerios, mum-mums are our regulars, and occasionally I'll let her have graham crackers.

    tho my kid loves olives!

  • Low salt? what? :) Z has become a Ritz cracker addict. he learned to say cracker and now uses it for everything. he will have a full on fit throwing session if he see's the ritz and doesn't get any. I think he has a sodium deficiency :)

  • I found these at Babies R Us the other day and am giving them a try. They have no added sodium! They are a little pricy but they are on sale right now. They also have banana, carrot, and apple.
