**A couple of notes:
Max really did not like these. Next time, I will use a natural dried fruit leather or make my own in a dehydrator. I wonder if mashed banana's could be substituted for the rice & white chip mixture and strawberries/kiwi used to substitute the worms? Just some thoughts to make these a little more nutritious. Any thoughts?**
