THE Teething Cookie

THE Teething Cookie from weelicious.com

Kenya had so much fun with THE Teething Cookie: holding it, eating it, sucking on it and rubbing it on his gums. The best part is that there's no sugar in them and they're packed with healthy nutrients. I've been giving him one every night after dinner and it's a great treat before bedtime.

I always take pictures of the food I make for the site, but this was a picture I couldn't resist.

*I wouldn’t start giving these to a baby under the age of 8 months. You always need to be around when baby is eating something they could choke on.
