Since little man was old enough to gum a solid food, his favorite snack has been Mum-Mums. You may be thinking, “What the !@!% is a mum-mum?”
It’s a rice rusk; or better known in our house as a ‘crunchy’.
This healthy snack is oval (baby selection) or round (toddler selection) in shape, approximately 5″ long and 2″ wide, feather light, and made of rice. It comes in three versions (baby, toddler, and older children) and flavors like banana and (little man’s favorite) vegetable. Now you may be thinking that a rice crunchy doesn’t sound all that tasty, but you’d be wrong. One day little man was being fussy and refusing a snack just because he was in the mood to cause trouble. Not to be outdone, I promptly showed him not to take advantage of the situation by shoving the veggie Mum-mum in my own mouth and taking a big bite. I fully expected to taste….well….nothing. The concept of a rice cracker made me think of absolutely no taste at all; just something dry and crispy. Well, I was wrong too. It wasn’t good…it was delicious! I turned to my husband and said, wide eyed, “These taste like vegetable dip…like at parties and stuff!” He made a face and replied, “Duh. I tasted one a long time ago. Why do you think he likes them so much?”
The taste is only the beginning. The ingredients are all natural:
japonica rice, potato starch, sugar (only 1g) , salt (25g) , pumpkin powder,
carrot powder, spinach powder, cabbage powder. May contain traces of milk.
That’s it. No color #18463736. No preservatives. Nothing.
Little man is begging for a snack that is GOOD FOR HIM.
I was amazed and couldn’t be happier.
At just under $2.00 per box of 24 (2 per pack), we always have a stock of them in the pantry. Little man eats them with meals sometimes, but most often as he’s playing and wants a ‘walk around snack’. See, the added bonus is that Mum-mums don’t melt. They don’t fall apart. They don’t smear. And trust me, little man knows how to make things smear. They also have no element that would get on clothes, stain carpet, or dirty little faces and fingers.
