Samples. I get samples. And sometimes they sit at my desk for awhile before the younger member of the household pipes up with a request to open the package.
Today's treat: Mother's Tranquil Tummy, little crackers by Natures Options.
What preteen doesn't like cheese crackers? I can't stand the things, myself, but my son's got pretty typical tastebuds, so... Perplexed though he was to find that what looked on the box's outside to be a favorite snack was instead three little boxes with a pretty pregnant woman on them, Mr Fearless gave 'em a shot.
These cute little wafers are made with ginger to soothe morning sickness. Having fueled Mr Fearless' own prenatal growth with not much more than slowly-ingested spoonfuls of chicken broth and sliced lemons, I think these special saltines are a good idea. The package says they can also be consumed to remedy non-pregnancy related conditions like motion sickness and medication reactions.
And I can attest right here and now that even stress-related nausea -- say, the kind you get when you're moving 350 miles from the only place you've ever lived -- responds nicely to the 250 mg of ginger in Tranquil Tummy crackers.
But I don't recommend them to the average snack-savvy preteen.
