    I have alot of left over baby food from my daughter. I as wondering if anyone uses this to feed their crabs. I know they have a bunch of flavors and mixed flavors like banana-mango, apples & cheeries, Blueberries & apples. Would these be ok to give?

    It's great. Laughs O lot feeds it all the time. Get the organic/natural kind and make sure the ingredients are on the safe food list.

    My crabs didn't really like the kind I got them they just crawled all over it and dragged it all over their tank with it being on their shells. It was messy. I haven't tried it since and I have been meaning to get more to try but I forget as when I go to the store now my kids are not babies so I am not in the baby isle anymore.

    Yeah see my daugther just got passed the baby food stage and I still have a few of the fruits. I figured it would be good for them since its safe and healthy for babies. I am going to try freezing it and just breaking off lil pieces like some other users have stated. I too am afraid that it may be a lil more messy than I would like.

    AS long as its organic--you can freeze them in ice cube trays too

    I just freeze it flat in a ziplock bag and break pieces off of it as needed. I had to add some of the rice cereal for babies to it to thicken it up. I was just saying I stopped using it more because I have a 4 and a 10 year old so I am never in the baby isle and I forget about it. I also didn't like the mess but I did make a fruit mixture that I mashed up with oats and berries and froze, they like that.

    I guess you could freeze it in Ice cube makers if you have those.

    My friend some times uses this to feed to her hermit crabs.
    So I guess it is ok. :)
    Good luck.
