  • I don't reallt consider them cookies, but also not crackers. They are somewhere in between. They aren't as bad for you as cookies, but also sweet like cookies. Hmmmm.

  • I'm not sure, but my MIL thinks since they are called animal crackers that you can eat them anytime. She will give them to my DD at 8:00 in the morning. It drives me NUTS!!! Not to mention my DH who thinks it is okay to eat rice crispy treats for breakfast since they are made from cereal. LOL

  • originally I believe they were made as crackers. I think they are a good snack for anytime, I've read the ingredients and think there are much worse things you could give your child for a snack (even in the morning)
    LOL maddiemygirl.. yeah my DH thinks oreo's are a staple to his diet.. crazy men.
