A rusk is a rusk
I purchased these for my 7 month old son when he started teething & He really enjoys them. I don’t think they have any nutritional benefit (in saying that none of the other brands do either). They are good way to introduce finger food as well as teething. They can be a chocking hazard which why it’s really important not to take your eyes off the baby when you give it to them. This isn’t something specific to the bellamys brands, we have had near choke incidents with other brands as well. It’s just the nature of the rusk and once it’s soaked in saliva they tend to be slippery. So use with caution but otherwise they have been fine for us.
CHOKING HAZARD BEWARE
They break down and my baby nearly choked 16 months old. There is no way they can be safe as they are hard and when they break down into smaller size after chewing it is a dangerous choking hazard. The dog now loves them.
Purchased in July 2019 for A$3.99.
The following is an email, that I've sent to Bellamy's via Facebook messenger. It's almost a week now and I am quite astonished and a little angry that I have not yet had a reply.
Firstly I'd like to start my email by saying we have enjoyed using Bellamy's products. We have used your organic formula for the past 4 months. I make my own baby food, however if it hasn't been convenient to do so on a small number of occasions where we are traveling - we have used your baby food which we like.
I was always worried about baby rusks. My baby is 9...
Just purchased these at the chemist warehouse, baby is currently 5 months old, so far he is enjoying it everytime i take it away from him he cries hehe baby keeps sucking so its dissolvable for itchy gums, smells nice too, i would recomend as a first snack. Good buy!! Will try other flavours.
'Organic' title slightly misleading
I happened to buy another packet of rusks and this pack of rusks in the same week. To be honest, my twins are quite happy with both brands. A rusk is a rusk, is a rusk, is a rusk...(only bit of hard baked flour really).
Yes, Bellamy's is using organic wheat flour and organic skin milk, but that's where its distinction with other brands ends. In fact, in a fit of boredom, i sat down and compared the two packs of rusks (being Bellamy's and Rafferty's Garden), and to be honest, the fact that Bellamy's has labelled its pack, "iron enriched" is ve...
These are a great product and they are organic. They are wonderful for the teething baby and it keeps them entertained for a while. I would give one to my son for afternoon tea while i got dinner ready and did the dishes and it would last ages.
This product often worked out cheaper than other non-organic brands. My son loved them and would chew for ages on one.
They a wrapped in pairs and my son would never eat two at a time so I would need to store one somewhere for a day or so until he was ready to eat it- but all the brands are the same.
I really love Bellamy's products. Toothiepegs is a great product. It is organic with no added sugars making it good for the teething baby. My daughter loved her Toothiepegs and it really did help her ease some of her discomfort with chewing. Your child does need to be old enough and capable of handling harder food, but it doesn't break off in huge chunks either. A little harder to find in my area, I ended up having to buy it online. But there are a number of retailers who sell this online and I think it was worth ordering online just to have or...ganic product, which Australian made and owned, which is good for my child's tooth development. Would recommend. An organic choice for a child who is teething. It's an Australian company. None I can think of.
Like all Bellamy products, you feel reassured that extra attention is paid to have quality ingredients without nasty additives and preservatives.
The packaging is easy and simple and there is no added sugar in these products.
I sometimes feel dubious about 'organic' products but I feel that Bellamy products are 'genuine' and have the best interest of your family in mind.
This product got a lot of use in our household and I think the name is extra cute.
Good quality and hard rusks. I like this company and the fact that there are no additives and preservatives.
My baby seemed to enjoy them too!
None that I know of
My baby did get bored after ten minutes with these - but he does that with all rusks. These are his favourites. I love the fact they are organic and have nothing strange in them - only things u can identify on the ingredients.
These are very very hard rusks - have noticed some other brands fall apart and you worry about baby choking. These dont break apart. Baby loved chewing on them for a while. Organic is great and they appear to be very simple ingredients - nothing nasty.
Expensive compared to other brands and to the non-organice varieties on the market.
