Hello, CucumberMouse!
I'm not sure I've tried giving my mice dissolvable treats for babies, but I do give them a whole bunch of different things. =P
But I'm sure those will be fine!! Smile

My mice have always been kinda eh about yogurt drops and the puffs. I bought strawberry and blueberry flavors for my daughter but the mice may have appreciated a different flavor. I never tried it. Anyway... safe, but potentially unloved. Smile

I know that yogurt drops are super sugary and considered very unhealthy. They're pretty much pure sugar.

Ok, thank you everyone!
Just one last question in regard to CinnamonPearl's post, for the yogurt drops, the ones I linked above aren't the usual petstore super-sugary ones, but would you say they're still too sugary?

The ingredients in the toddler snacks are better than the pet store ones, but there's naturally still a bit of sugar. Gerber's are essentially dehydrated yogurt (cultured reduced fat milk and sugar) and a quick Google suggests pet store drops are... a processed sugary-starch and more sugar. So very sugary.

I'd consider them an ok occasional treat, rather than something you'd want to offer daily. Kinda the equivalent of an occasional ice cream. Ice Cream Between yogurt drops and the puff cereals, I'd go for the puffs, but yogurt drops aren't unsafe and in moderation, they're not unhealthy.

The yogurt drops are less sugary than the pet shop variety and thus like others said, are okay as an occasional snack.

As for the puffs my mice love them. Its their favorite. I try to hold back but they get one a day! I convince myself that it's healthy if I throw it into the salads I make for them.

I have the a sweet potato now but the strawberry banana was a hit too. Mine love cereals, though. Never tried yogurt.
