Looking for a healthy dried fruit snack? Hungry Girl compares Gerber Fruit Puffs with Dried Banana Chips to find the most diet-friendly snack.

Bite It: Gerber Fruit Puffs

We love food a lot. Because of this, we will often do things that others (who don't love food as much as we do) may consider embarrassing or weird. Today's "Bite It" is a perfect example of this. After being tipped off about Gerber Fruit Puffs for toddlers (by subscribers who actually have toddlers), we decided to give 'em a chew, and much to our surprise and delight, we dig 'em. A lot. Like a cross between banana chips and banana cereal, these little puffs are sooo light and airy you know you're eating something that's really low in calories, yet it's crunchy and satisfying enough to be a great snack. And these things have soooo much banana flavor that they'll without a doubt satisfy any urges you have for banana chips. Pop 'em straight or use 'em as a topping for yogurt (frozen or otherwise). Oh, and you get 80 (yes, 80!) of these puffy little critters per serving. Woohoo!

My two-year-old likes whole, real bananas. I don't buy the gimmicky Gerber foods. Most of them aren't really healthy, anyway. (Just read the labels.) They're also very expensive because they are charging for the brand and for the hope that the parents will buy into it.
