When I first tried these out with my son, he was not interested. He stared at it for quite sometime and then tossed it on the floor.Now he is almost 13 months old and he will sometimes eat them.Although sometimes he just feeds them to the dogs. He seems to like them more when he is teething. He also seems to want extra fluids while eating them. They do get a bit messy. I made the mistake of giving my son one while he was in his play pen. It got everywhere! On a positive note, these do seem to be very healthy. As well as I believe that these help to teach him to feed himself. They do have a couple different flavors (the strawberry banana isnt too bad), although my son seemed to enjoy the apple cinnamon more than the others. On to the price.. IF my son enjoyed them more I would not mind purchasing these more. To be honest I think that are better alternatives for better prices. I have personally tried one and I dont blame my little guy. They are very dry! I would most likely not recommend these cereal bars to anyone unless the child is teething.
